Freestore Foodbank


Established 1971

Mission To provide food and services, and create stability and further self-reliance for people in crisis. Starting with food, we uncover the root causes of poverty and instability to create sustainable solutions.

Serving Our Community Freestore Foodbank offers food for today, connection for tomorrow, and hope for a lifetime through long-term interventions. Food assistance includes support of 400 local 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, Giving Fields community farm, and holiday food for the whole 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.
