USDA & Ohio Commodities Agreement Update

Nov 13, 2015

As the Foodbanks begins to implement our new strategic plan, the member services department is undergoing staffing changes and restructuring to better serve all member agencies. Due to these changes, not all agencies will complete a site inspection this year. However, emergency feeding programs still need to complete the 2015 USDA and Ohio Commodities Agreement. There have been a few minor changes to the document since last year.


Below you will find a copy of the 2015 USDA and Ohio Commodities Agreement, a summary of changes made to the document, and instructions to use the Foodbank’s new language line service. Please sign the agreement and return to the Foodbank no later than Tuesday, December 15.
