Many Ohioans Not Feeling Effects Of Improved Economy

Mar 3, 2015

Ohio's unemployment is down and numbers from the state show Ohio's economy is recovering from the Great Recession of 2008.

But Lisa Hamler-Fugitt of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks says a new report shows some in Ohio are doing well while others still can't make ends meet.

Hamler-Fugitt says the numbers from 2013 are much worse than those of 2007. She says the report shows more than two million Ohioans who relied on food pantries last year are using all of their paychecks on rent, utility bills and out of pocket medical costs.
