Ohio Budget Compromise Restores Funding for Food Banks

A conference committee fixed this massive oversight

A conference committee has restored additional funding for Ohio food banks in the state's upcoming two-year budget.

The House had given the Ohio Association of Foodbanks an additional $15 million in its version of the biennial budget, but the Senate's version cut that funding and imposed restrictions on other food programs.
