Ohio Association of Foodbanks
The Ohio Association of Foodbanks proposes to engage at least 829 RSVP participants to enable the critical work of meeting the basic needs of Franklin and Delaware Counties' poor population. The RSVP participants will, through the primary area under Healthy Futures of Food & Obesity, wll be distributing food at central Ohio food pantries. The association will also engage participants through the "Other Focus Areas and Community Needs" to provide services to military families by helping them to meet the basic needs of their families by accessing work supports, education benefits, healthcare and much more through an online service called The Ohio Benefit Bank. The remaining 30 percent of participants will assist low- and no-income seniors and others access healthcare through The Ohio Benefit Bank.
As a first-time applicant, we do not yet know the service stations.
The expected outcomes are that out of 1500 poor families served in Central Ohio, at least 500 will report increased food security through the primary focus area. In the remaining two measures, there was no outcome required.
The federal share requested is $74,505 per year and the non-federal share is $7451 in the first year, $14,901 in the second year, and $22,352 in the third year if the project is renewed after year one.
