Food Giveaway Expands with Partnership

A collaboration to feed hundreds of people across the region helped people in Campbell Wednesday.

The Ohio Association of Foodbanks and United Healthcare have partnered to distribute food to 2,500 people in 11 counties over the next two months.

At one of the stops, St. John the Baptist Church, volunteers were handing out fruits, vegetables and other items.

“29 years ago when sister started this, then I took over when she left. There was a lot of people that needed food,” said giveaway coordinator Lucy Hames. “Not like now, but I used to come when someone called. Now, we have such a mass coming in all the time.”

Volunteers also provided a  pizza lunch for those picking up food.

St. John the Baptist Church has a giveaway the third Wednesday of every month.
