Zink Helps Put More Fruits & Veggies on the Table

Zink Foodservice is a Silver Sponsor for the Sixth Annual Harvest Ball put on by Local Matters on Friday, October 21st. Guests enjoyed a cocktail style event featuring unique and flavorful food, live music from The Conspiracy Band and exclusive raffles! Every dollar raised supports healthful food education at over 80 sites, reaching everyone from preschoolers to seniors, to combat chronic disease and food insecurity. Sponsorships like Zink’s impact the lives of children in these communities by bringing healthful food education and increased healthy food access to schools and neighborhoods in Columbus and statewide.

Individuals experiencing hunger have a tough time meeting dietary recommendations and affordable, nutritious food options can be inaccessible for children and their families. One in four children in Franklin County are living in poverty, over 35% are receiving food assistance, and as a result, are at higher risk of obesity and diet-related diseases.
