Best Volunteer Experience
Amidst the pandemic, Mid-Ohio Foodbank was working tirelessly to provide meals during a time when it was essential for a lot of families. During the first few months of the COVID-19 outbreak, the increase in demand heightened. By March, the Foodbank had donated 6 million pounds of food.
Previously, the Foodbank was set up so people could come in and shop for what they liked, so operations had to change quickly. Volunteers quickly transitioned to a no-touch, drive-thru model. It’s just one of the ways the Foodbank is working to stay open and stay healthy.
Best Suburban Festival
Best Local Pizzeria
