About Kroger Food Pantry: Established in 2012, the Kroger Community Food Pantry operates as a choice food pantry and is open to the community four days a week. Last year, the Pantry provided groceries to nearly 8,000 households in the greater Columbus Area. The success of the Pantry depends on the commitment and generosity of many volunteers. Mid-Ohio Foodbank needs volunteers to staff the Welcome Desk, stock grocery items, and assist families shopping in the Pantry.
About #CbusGivesBack: Columbus Gives Back coordinates group volunteer events with local non-profits, organizes philanthropic happy hours to raise support and awareness for our non-profit partners, and participates in other philanthropic events while emphasizing our social twist: to have fun with volunteers new and old during and after events in the hopes of creating a culture of community engagement amongst our target audience of young professionals.
