The Freestore Foodbank team is comprised of more than 100 employees working together to solve hunger. With one in six neighbors in our Tri-State area at at risk of hunger, we are dedicated to addressing the need. We provide 27 million meals each year in 20 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
Rubber Duck Regatta
Buy a duck, feed a child, win a prize! We are a proud supporter of the Freestore FoodBank’s Annual Rubber Duck Regatta. This event takes place over Labor Day weekend prior to the Western & Southern/WEBN fireworks. That afternoon, as many as 200,000 ducks will swim in the Ohio River near the Serpentine Wall.
The Mayerson Distribution Center
More than 80,000 children living in the 20 counties served by Freestore Foodbank are food insecure, meaning they aren’t always sure where they will get their next meal. Volunteers at the Freestore Foodbank Mayerson Distribution Center work to put together food power packs for children, families, and seniors in need.
Back On Track Clothing Donation
Clothing is a life necessity, but not something everyone can easily afford for themselves and their families. To help create stability and further self-reliance, Freestore Food Bank offers the Back on Track program. This program provides free clothing to their customers as they prepare for job interviews and training as well as providing emergency clothing for men, women and children.
If you would like to donate gently used clothing and personal care items to the Back on Track program, please click here.
