Program areas at Freestore Foodbank

Freestore Foodbank has served our neighbors in need for 49 years, starting in cincinnati, Ohio and expanding to a 20-county region in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The mission of Freestore Foodbank is to improve lives by eliminating hunger in partnership with our community. Our vision is a hunger-free, healthy, and thriving community. To achieve this vision, our objectives are to provide nutritious food, connect families to supportive services and ensure hope through pathways from crisis to stability. The majority of the organization's revenue comes from food and product donations (non-cash contributions). Financial contributions are also obtained to support our programs and services with the goal of eliminating food insecurity in our region. Freestore Foodbank supplied over 37 million meals in the 2020 fiscal year, helping to serve the 244,000 food insecure individuals in our region (according to feeding america's pre-covid-19 research). A trusted network of more than 500 community partners helps Freestore Foodbank to distribute emergency food and other social services. Member agencies include: soup kitchens, shelters, food pantries, churches, daycare centers, senior centers, school program sites and other community and social service organizations. Together, we can solve hunger!
Located in cincinnati's over-the-rhine, Freestore Foodbank's customer connection center and liberty street market meet the needs of our community's most vulnerable neighbors, including those who are homeless or unemployed, as well as the working poor and families in crisis. Emergency food assistance, serving approximately 300 individuals each day was distributed from the liberty street market during the 2020 fiscal year, helping to feed over 40,000 people in need. Freestore Foodbank works daily to address not only the issue of hunger, but also offers services aimed at creating stability and self-sufficiency in the areas of housing, transportation, clothing, benefits enrollment, financial management and job assistance.
