From 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Monday, January 21, volunteers will gather on Fountain Square to participate join the Freestore Foodbank in the fight against childhood hunger with the Fifth Annual Power Pack-a-Thon event. Participants will help prepare Power Packs. The Freestore Foodbank provides the bags of nutritious food to local students each Friday, to ensure they have something to eat on weekends when they are away from school.
Power Pack-a-Thon is the Freestore Foodbank’s response to President Barack Obama’s call to transform Martin Luther King Day into a national day of community service. In its fifth year, the event has helped hundreds of volunteers in Cincinnati honor Martin Luther King Day while feeding thousands of Tri-State children. While all volunteer slots are already filled, you can still support the Power Pack program by donating here.
