Ashland County Food Bank

When Times are Tough

Keeping nutritious food on the table should not be a burden when facing the stress of a difficult life transition. That’s why we're here to provide short-term food assistance to people with financial need residing in Ashland County. The Food Bank is supported solely by generous donations collected from 30 churches, businesses, organizations, and individuals of Ashland County. We are staffed by caring volunteers ready to listen and provide you with the help and resources you need.

The Ashland County Food Bank has been serving families since 1980. We are proud to be able to offer a variety of items including: milk, eggs, cheese, sandwich meat, ground beef, sausage, chicken, roasts plus canned and boxed groceries. We also keep a supply of taxable items not available with food stamps (toilet paper, toothpaste, soaps and personal items).
