Local manufacturer teams with Bob Evans Foods to deliver 40K pounds of food to those in need

In This Together

JOHNSTOWN, Ohio (WCMH) — Bob Evans Foods is teaming up with a manufacturing company to help hungry families in central Ohio during the coronavirus shut down.

Bob Evans Foods is donating 40,000 pounds of food to local pantries.

On Saturday, Bov Evans teamed up with Apeks Supercritical in Johnstown, using their warehouse space to break down all that food into family meal kits.

Each kit contains basics like eggs and potatoes, and those kits will go to 19 local food banks.

“We felt like it was the least thing we could do, to lend our space and some of our guys and our equipment to help Bob Evans and feed people who are not fortunate enough to be in the same situation we are,” said Andy Joseph from Apeks Supercritical.

Apeks Supercritical usually makes CO2 oil extraction systems for the cannabis industry, but lately has switched to making hand sanitizer.
