• The Linden Fresh Market

The Linden Market partners with Mid-Ohio Food Collective to distribute free food in Ohio. We focus on health and provide our market members with free, fresh, & healthy produce. This Market is an Equal Opportunity Provider.

We provide free, fresh produce to any household earning less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. If you qualify and would like to become a member, stop by the market during our open hours. Just bring photo identification for your first visit!

More About Us

Our mission: Creating a Connected Community

As the Community and Economic Development Arm of New Salem Baptist Church, the Community of Caring Development Foundation (COCDF) has planted seeds of hope and health in Linden and witnessed what can be accomplished when neighbors join together to create a connected community. Over the years, we have continued our commitment to investing in the lives of individuals and families by providing access to affordable housing, meals, pandemic assistance, community grants, academic scholarship awards, and more. We are proud to call the Linden community HOME!
