Family Services focuses on a range of programs and special efforts for local families and individuals. From its Choice Food Pantry, to counseling, to health services and more, the agency meets neighbors’ needs and help them on the road to sustainability. Nearly 8,000 unique individuals were helped by the agency in 2016 — 9 percent more than the year before! CRC provided more than 450,000 meals last year.
The CRC Family Services and Choice Food Pantry serves the Clintonville and surrounding communities through a choice food pantry, weekly produce distributions, community meals, access to Ohio Benefit Bank counselors, and other assistance.
Thanks to grants from The Columbus Foundation/Osteopathic Heritage Foundation, Medical Mutual of Ohio, individual donors, and the work of students at The Ohio State University Department of Design and College of Education and Human Ecology (Dietetics), the CRC has completed renovations at our 14 W. Lakeview Family Services Building. In 2017, CRC served from this small building nearly 500,000 meals to 2,680 unduplicated households in 66 ZIP codes in 14 Central Ohio counties.
