Columbus, OH – June 13, 2012 — Members of the Columbus team volunteered their time in the food pantry of the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, a nonprofit organization that feeds the hungry by collecting and distributing food throughout Central and Eastern Ohio.
At the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, fifteen brave Centric warriors went to battle with two tons of sweet potatoes…and WON! All we had were our bare hands and some mesh bags. We sacked those potatoes for hours until there was no more. They were sent on their way to be peeled and boiled in food pantry kitchens. We walked in as individuals but left as a team. We’ll always remember that day…
