Hundreds of vehicles converged on the parking lot of the Wright State University Nutter Center on Aug. 23 to receive fresh produce.
For the sixth straight year Wright State hosted The Dayton Foodbank’s distribution pickup for Greene County. CareSource provided the volunteers.
The Dayton Foodbank serves as the primary source of food for the hunger relief network in the Miami Valley. About 95,000 pounds of fresh produce were distributed to 497 Greene County families during the event.
“We’re always excited that Wright State is willing to partner with us and let us use the Nutter Center parking lot at no cost,” said Lora Davenport, advocacy program manager at The Foodbank.
If you’re a Wright State student in a food crisis, the university’s Raider Food Pantry, 055 Student Union, can be of assistance.
