Second Harvest Food Bank

SHFB (small)Food security is not just a problem for poor nations.  Hunger is one of the leading challenges here in the United States.

Almost 1 out of every 6 Americans has to worry about providing enough food for their families.  Even worse, 1 out of every 4 children in Ohio goes to bed hungry every night.

Located in Springfield, OH, Catholic Charities’ Second Harvest Food Bank is there to help, serving Clark, Champaign, and Logan counties.

The Food Bank provides more than 4 million meals a year through over 90 member agencies comprised of food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters throughout the three county service area, including the cities of Springfield, New Carlisle, South Charleston, Urbana and Bellefontaine.

We also provide emergency assistance for rent, utilities, and a variety of other needs to the poor and vulnerable of this region wherever funds are available.

All of our services are provided with the goal of helping our clients get back on their feet and become self-sustaining.

The Second Harvest Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, the national organization committed to fighting hunger.  Along with 11 other food banks in the state, we form the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, “the largest charitable response to hunger in the state of Ohio”.
