XENIA — Mayor Marsha Bayless joined Gov. John Kasich and several faith and community groups in encouraging citizens to join the fight against hunger and help families in need.
Bayless presented a Feed Ohio Proclamation to Michael Stevens, president of the Dayton Ohio East Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sept. 4, recognizing the group for its efforts.
A 100 percent volunteer effort timed in conjunction with the National Day of Service Sept. 11, Feed Ohio is a statewide volunteer humanitarian effort to provide food assistance to individuals and families in the state of Ohio that need help.
Donated items go directly to the local food bank, lending a hand to the members of the community that need it most.
Feed Ohio is a month-long intensive collaboration between faith-based groups, houses of worship, community service organizations and businesses — regardless of religious affiliation — to gather non-perishable food and monetary donations to be distributed through local food banks across the state.
