A Message from Mid-Ohio Food Collective

Rally for Ohio’s Future
Wednesday, June 21, Noon– 1 p.m.
Ohio Statehouse West Lawn

Dear Partner Network-

On Wednesday, June 21, from noon to 1 p.m., human services advocates from across the state will gather for a “Rally for Ohio’s Future” on the West Lawn of the Ohio Statehouse (1 Capitol Square, Columbus, Ohio 43215). MOFC and our community are joining the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and other organizations who care about the daily needs of working Ohioans. Please join us to Rally for Ohio’s Future!

Ohio’s anti-poverty and hunger relief agencies have been stepping up to give help and hope to our communities at record levels for more than three years. Our work is not done!

In the next two weeks, state lawmakers will decide whether Ohio parents and caregivers, kids, workers, jobseekers, older adults, and people with disabilities will be able to count on more staple foods and Ohio-grown fruits and vegetables from local hunger relief providers and access needed support services to lift our neighbors and communities.

The Ohio Legislature will have the opportunity to fund Ohio’s foodbanks to foster healthy, nourished communities; to provide free school meals to more of Ohio’s students; to expand Medicaid coverage for pregnant women, infants, and toddlers; and to invest in affordable housing, healthy aging, quality childcare and public schools, and so much more.

But some in the Ohio Legislature are working to do the opposite—to limit access to food assistance and health coverage, cut investments in basic services and safety net programs, and endanger revenue needed to pay for basic needs down the road. The current budget proposal would strip funding for foodbanks that was previously in the state budget bill and add onerous restrictions for a variety of programs that support the Ohioans we serve each day.

Share if you can make it. Fill out this brief form if you would like a free seat on a charter bus to travel to Columbus with other rally participant from your area.

Let’s show up and speak up together!
