The Way Station in Columbiana and East Liverpool are helping families with children in need with meal boxes

COLUMBIANA CO., (WYTV) – The Way Station in Columbiana and East Liverpool are seeking emergency food donations.

They will be creating weekly meal boxes for families with children in need while Ohio schools are in mandatory shut down.

The food items the need follow:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Bread
  • Cereal
  • Milk
  • Fruit cups
  • Cheese
  • Soup
  • Any other kid friendly foods

The drop off in Columbiana is Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In East Liverpool, the drop off is Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Thanks to a push on social media, The Way Station says received an outpouring of food and money donations.

People have dropped off child-friendly food that they will soon distribute to those in need.

They do encourage people to seek out the options being offered through their school district before stopping in, but they say that if you are in need now, the help is here for you.

“We don’t know how long or how much the need is going to be, so we are hoping we can continue to do this for as long as the schools are shut down,” said Executive Director Chaney Nezbeth.

Nezbeth says that both their Columbiana and East Liverpool will accept donations.

They do not restrict donations to residents of specific counties.
