Mid-Ohio Food Collective to Undergo Significant Changes

It will close its Grove City drive-thru pantry, open massive market

Music played in the background, and the sound of grocery cart wheels rolling around could be heard as volunteers loaded carts with small jugs of milk, rolls of sausage, grapes, bananas, loaves of bread and more.
