Fighting Hunger

– Providing Thanksgiving meals to families in need.

Byron Saunders Foundation logo

The Byron Saunders Foundation is a non-profit organization created with the mission of providing Thanksgiving meals to families in need in Central Ohio and surrounding counties. We count on the generosity of the community to help make this possible. During the holiday months, the need for assistance to families tends to increase. It is with community support through volunteer time, food and monetary donations that we are able to provide 5,020 families a Thanksgiving meal last year.

For I was hungry, and you gave Me food…whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did it for me.” -Matthew 25:35, 40

Our impact last year:

Families served

Help us reach our goal of feeding

4,000 families in need this year.
