For the fifth consecutive year, IMPACT Community Action and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank are teaming up to provide fresh produce for income-eligible households in Columbus and Franklin County!

The 2017 Fresh Produce Giveaways are scheduled on the following Thursdays, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

  • May 25th

IMPACT will host each Fresh Produce Giveaway on the rear parking lot at its headquarters at 700 Bryden Road in Columbus (43215).  Each event is first come, first served.

People attending the produce giveaways are encouraged to arrive early and to bring bags and/or other materials to transport the food.

Because No One Should Go Hungry ...

In 2016, during the four Fresh Produce Giveaways that were held in July, August, September and October, 40,803 pounds of food were distributed and 436 households were served!  There was a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods and dairy items distributed free of charge.

IMPACT and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank thank the more than 50 staff member, program participants and other volunteers who contributed more than 150 hours of volunteer service to help make the 2016 Fresh Produce Giveaway Program another huge success!   

Working together to feed those in need ... Because No One Should Go Hungry! 


The Fresh Produce Giveaways operate on a first-come, first-served basis. The items offered will depend on the availability from the foodbank, and will likely include onions, potatoes, carrots, lettuce, apples, cucumbers, zucchini, and beets, among other items.

IMPACT will host the Fresh Produce Giveaways on the rear parking lot at its headquarters at 700 Bryden Road, in Columbus (43215), from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the following Thursdays: May 25th, June 15th, July 20th, August 17th and September 21st.
