Convention Center Sends Food To Tennessee For Tornado-Relief

(ONN) – A convention center in Ohio’s capital city has sent more than a ton of food it had ordered for last week’s Arnold Sports Festival to tornado-ravaged Tennessee to help feed emergency personnel there.

The Greater Columbus Convention Center expected to feed around 200,000 visitors during the four-day festival that ran through Sunday, but those plans were thwarted Thursday when the Ohio Department of Health issued an order restricting most spectators because of coronavirus concerns.

Convention center officials say a refrigerated truck that left Columbus on Friday afternoon arrived Saturday morning at Nissan Stadium in Nashville to help feed 2,000 first responders.
