Partnering with Mid-Ohio Foodbank

Take the pledge, lose weight and feed your community.

Mid-Ohio Foodbank, a member of the Feeding America network, is working harder every day to assist individuals and their families right here in central and eastern Ohio in these tough economic times. It’s a daily challenge, and the Foodbank is always looking for new ways to meet the need for food assistance head-on.

That’s why today [Walk with a Doc] is so excited to announce our involvement in the Feeding America Pound for Pound Challenge! Now in its second year, this proven fundraising program has partnered with NBC’s The Biggest Loser and General Mills to encourage Americans to “Lose Nationally, Feed Locally”. And we need your support to make our involvement a success.

Participating is easy and your impact can be huge.

Simply sign up and pledge your weight loss goals at For every pound you pledge, General Mills and other partners will donate 14 cents to Feeding America. In addition, you can quickly and easily gain encouragement for reaching your goal and pledges for Mid-Ohio Foodbank through the program’s Friends & Family Online Fundraising program.

At the end of the Challenge, Feeding America distributes funds to local food banks. The more sign ups and pledges Mid-Ohio Foodbank has from the area, the more funds it receives. So please help us by signing up now and encouraging others to sign up and/or pledge!

It’s a great opportunity for our supporters to do something good for themselves and do something good for our community.
