Help Us Help the Community: OPA's Operation Feed Goal

Times are tough. Unemployment rates are high. The economic crisis continues. And the need for food is greater than ever in the state of Ohio.

Demand for food in 2009 from the Mid-Ohio Foodbank was up seven percent over a record number of requests in 2008, and this year, the Foodbank’s Operation Feed goal is to provide six-million meals.

You can help.

OPA’s Committee for Social Responsibility is hosting a food drive until the end of June. Today, we donated 309 pounds of food, or 309 meals, to Operation Feed, thanks to the generous support of OPA members, workshop attendees, OPA Board of Directors and the Central Ohio Psychological Association.

Members have also contributed $125 in monetary donations. One dollar equals two meals, so an additional 250 meals have been provided.

We still have a month of our food drive left, and we want to donate one meal for every OPA member... so we need 1,600 meals total.

Here's how you can help:

    • Pasta meals in a can
    • Canned fruit
    • Tuna
    • Canned vegetables
    • Canned meat
    • Soup
    • Peanut Butter
  • Collect all spare change from employees in your office through the end of the month. Contact OPA to have us collect the donation for the Foodbank.

Thanks for your support!
