Details:

Since 1919, Franklin County Public Health has operated as a full-service health department in the State of Ohio. Their mission is to improve the health of our communities by preventing disease, promoting healthy living and protecting against public health threats through education, policies, programs, and partnerships.  

 

Join Besa and Franklin County Public Health to help provide food to our neighbors in crisis. Besa volunteers will help unload produce supplied by the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, organize and sort produce, and pack produce boxes. 

 

FCPH will provide gloves, hand sanitizer, face mask and we'll also practice social distancing. Limited interaction will take place during this volunteer event. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

Officials still strongly recommend that people remain at home when possible and limit gathering sizes. Volunteers, however, continue to be needed now more than ever. That means our critical-need projects, as well as those of our partner agencies, are still happening. And healthy and willing volunteers are needed.

 

  • This is a kid-friendly opportunity, but all minors must be accompanied by an adult.
