Mission: Freestore Foodbank improves lives by eliminating hunger in partnership with our community. Our vision is a hunger-free, healthy, and thriving community.
Serving Our Community: Freestore Foodbank offers food for today, connection for tomorrow, and hope for a lifetime through emergency, supplemental, and long-term interventions. Food assistance includes the support of more than 500 community partners as part of the Feeding America network. Related programs include Power Pack weekend bags, Kids Cafe after-school meals, School and Clinic Pantries, formula for infants, Senior Boxes for those on a fixed income, Healthy Harvest Mobile Market, and holiday food for the family. Providing connection to local families, we offer clothing, benefits enrollment, financial management assistance, transportation, rent/ utilities assistance, referrals, and more, culminating in individualized case management through our Stabilization Program when needed. To build hope we offer free job training through our Cincinnati COOKS! culinary program and LIFT The TriState logistics and warehousing program.
