The Holiday Food Basket campaign began in 1983 as a means for State of Ohio employees to assist the Mid-Ohio Foodbank fulfill its mission to obtain and distribute food to more than 500 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs, and senior housing sites across central and eastern Ohio. The campaign continues to grow each year, with state agencies contributing almost 28,000 pounds of food and nearly $53,000 to the foodbank this year.
