It’s not an easy thing to celebrate when the Mid-Ohio Foodbank would much rather not be in business. Yet, with hunger still a massive problem in the city, we must tip our cap to an organization that keeps pace with the need as well as any in the country. Nearly 150,000 meals a day come from the Foodbank, and they’re constantly innovating new ways to serve—from offering free class credits to Ohio State student volunteers, to setting up co-sponsored free farmers’ markets.
