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. As a volunteer, you'll 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. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival. 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. 


The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
