Ohio food banks are distributing more food these days than during the recession a few years ago.
The Ohio Association of Foodbanks says a difficult employment climate and increased costs for daily necessities are to blame.
The association says state food banks distributed 45 percent more food and supplies in fiscal year 2012 than they did just three years earlier at the height of the recession.
A record number of Miami Valley residents are seeking help from the food bank because of the recession and the rise in unemployment.
