South Side Roots is a cafe operated by Mid-Ohio Foodbank that provides nutritious food to the south side community. Their programs include a pay-what-you-can cafe, a weekly community meal, and a Kids Cafe meal program for students at South Side Learning & Development Center and the Boys & Girls Club of Columbus.


Join Besa and South Side Roots to provide nutritious food to our South Side neighbors! As volunteers, you'll assist with pre-bagging food and distributing carryout meals for neighbors picking up food.
