ShareCorps-SE Ohio Foodbank-Hunger&Health Associate
 
 
 
In Southeast Ohio, 1 in 6 individuals, including 1 in 4 children, struggle with hunger. Those facing food insecurity include seniors, children, working adults, veterans, and students. A combination of rising food prices, SNAP benefit cuts, wage stagnation and underemployment has contributed to an increased need in our emergency food services. These individuals face tough choices, choosing between food and other basic necessities like paying for utilities, transportation, medicine, housing, and education. Located at HAPCAP's Regional Food Center, the Southeast Ohio Foodbank & Regional Kitchen has been working with federal, state and local organizations and community members to provide food to over 70+ food pantries, soup kitchens and congregate meal sites throughout Southeastern Ohio. We work together to combat our four feeding initiatives: feeding families, child hunger, senior feeding, and healthy eating.
