Mid-Ohio Food Collective collection efforts continue at Metro Parks winter hikes

Give back while getting out! Metro Parks will collect donations and raise money for the Mid-Ohio Food Collective during our January winter hikes. Last year, we raised $1,820 that went directly to feeding hungry families in Franklin County and the Central Ohio area. We also collected nearly 2,000 lbs of personal hygiene products and canned food items that helped Mid-Ohio Food Collective’s efforts. We are thrilled to continue to collect canned food and personal hygiene items for this worthy cause.  Items most needed include: canned meat (chicken, tuna, etc.), oatmeal, complete meals like beefaroni, beef stew and soups. The most needed personal hygiene products are: wipes, diapers and feminine hygiene products. Stop by Metro Parks table at the locations and times below to drop off donations, get your Ticket to Travel booklet stamped or pick up your Winter Hikes Patch. We hope to see you there!
