Business Community Supports Columbus CROP Hunger Walk

The Mid-Ohio Food Bank distributes enough food to provide 40,000 meals every day. The Mid-Ohio Food Bank distributed 30.3 million pounds of food and other grocery products in 2006.

The 29th Annual Columbus CROP Walk was held on October 14, 2008, and was a huge success. Hundreds of people from over 70 churches, schools and civic groups walked in downtown Columbus and historic German Village to help end hunger here in central Ohio and around the world.
