Mid-Ohio Market

The Mid-Ohio Market at Columbus State (MOM @CState) is a resource for students and community members to access free, fresh, and shelf-stable food on a regular basis. It is located at 400 Grove Street on the Columbus Campus.   

We are currently offering prepacked boxes of vegetables, fruit, dairy, meat, and dry goods. Variety and availability varies each day. We also have a limited supply of diapers and pet food available on request. 

Who is Eligible

Eligible shoppers must have a household income that is less than 200% of the federal poverty level. There is no limit to how many times per month eligible shoppers can visit the Market.  

Students can schedule an appointment to receive a prepacked box at the Market through the MOM site on Starfish, located in Blackboard.
