(WHBC) – The Ohio Association of Food Banks is looking to the state Senate for more funding in the two-year budget, after the House flatlined the hunger-response organization at $39 million.

Lisa Hamler-Fugitt who heads the association says they’re seeing retired and near-retired residents still dealing with the effects of the Great Recession.

Hamler-Fugitt says they’d like to see the Senate drop in another $10 million for hunger.
