Health Partners of Western Ohio also set up a mobile clinic in the food bank parking lot. COVID-19 vaccines were offered to those who have not received their first shot.

"We had a great turnout and huge success with the last resource fair that we did back in April, so we decided to offer another one for late summer/early fall," said Tommie Harner, CEO of the West Ohio Food Bank, in a news release. "We feel this is a great opportunity for community agencies and organizations to show those most in need to our area that there are resources and services available to them that they may not have even known about."
