Delivering Food Boxes to Central Ohio Families

In Ohio, over half a million children live in poverty!

Every day families living in poverty have to make impossible choices between “the most important” basic human needs. Food being one of them. A third of children are enrolled in school-based nutrition programs, but many are at risk of going hungry, specifically during school winter break. THIS is our focus; the two weeks that children are away from school, but still need food.

We take time every year to raise money and resources to provide food to families in need. With over 1,200,000 pounds of food donated to 8,800 families since 2009, we are excited and have our sights set on providing food for even more families and children in 2022.

 

Highlights from Our 13th Annual Food Outreach (2021)

Our 13th Annual Holiday Food Outreach saw more 150+ volunteers pack and deliver 400 boxes of food to families throughout Central Ohio. Making a difference never gets old, and our food outreach always gives families positive momentum heading into the new year. Thank you to all of our community partners!

Help Us Feed More Families

One in nine people in Ohio struggles with hunger. Help us reach our goal of providing food to 500 families this year—even more than last year. Just $25 helps feed a family for one week.

Highlights from Our 12th Annual Food Outreach (2020)

Due to COVID-19 restrictions our 12th Annual Food Outreach looked slightly different, but the impact will remained the same. On December 19, 2020, 70+ Driven Foundation team members and volunteers boxed up food and delivered them to the homes of 200 Central Ohio Families. The pandemic will not stop us from walking in purpose.

Highlights from Our 11th Annual Food Outreach (2019)

In our eleventh annual Food Outreach, 150 volunteers provided one week’s worth of food for 400 families. That brings our total to 1,050,000 pounds of food donated to 8,000 families since 2009.
