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. 

 

Face masks are required to be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. Masks and gloves are available upon request. Limited client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 60, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
