FOODFIGHT is an event held to fight hunger in our community. In partnership with Mid-Ohio Foodbank, the Central Ohio Restaurant Association organizes a group of member restaurants that generously volunteer to donate a portion of one day’s sales receipts (dine-in + carryout) to help those in need. All proceeds benefit Operation Feed, Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s annual community-wide food and funds campaign.
Give your customers the opportunity to help local families! Becoming a partner restaurant is simple with our short online registration. There is no fee to participate, no coupons or menu alterations are requited & your restaurant will benefit from focused marketing and promotional efforts, all geared toward driving traffic to FOODFIGHT 2013 participants.

FOODFIGHT 2013, the fifth annual “Eat Out to Fight Hunger” event, will be held on Wednesday, June 26. To participate, patrons dine or drink at participating restaurant locations at any time on June 26. 5% of the total check (food + beverage) will benefit Operation Feed.
Last year, FOODFIGHT raised more than 75,000 meals in just one day! Every dollar equals three meals for those in need, and 100% of dollars raised provides food for struggling families right here in central and eastern Ohio. With continuing effects of the economic crisis and high unemployment rates, demand for emergency food assistance is at an all-time high.
FOODFIGHT is a tasty way to help community members in need. Just eat out at a participating establishment on June 26th. Help spread the word, and get friends, family or colleagues together for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee break, happy hour, or late night eats on event day!
