Healthy Harvest Mobile Market

Mediaon March 1st, 2017Comments Off on Healthy Harvest Mobile Market

The Healthy Harvest Mobile Market presented by TriHealth provides fresh fruits and vegetables to families living in communities without ready access to fresh, healthy and affordable food.

We are a community collaboration among TriHealth, Impact 100 and the Freestore Foodbank. The Healthy Harvest Mobile Market launched in Spring 2016 to promote good nutrition and encourage healthy shopping in neighborhoods without ready access to fresh, healthy and affordable food.

Click here to learn more about food deserts in the Tri-State area.

While our selection changes based on the season, some of our produce has included: cabbage, kale, chard, chives, cilantro, romaine lettuce, spinach, turnips, apples, grapes and bananas.

Where can you find us? We operate Monday through Friday year-round, visiting local neighborhoods that lack easy access to grocery stores and farmers’ markets. Please visit http://healthyharvestmobilemarket.com/ for current information.

Advocacy Kicked Into High Gear In February

Mediaon February 27th, 2017Comments Off on Advocacy Kicked Into High Gear In February

Advocacy kicks into high gear in February

Advocacy helps us engage and mobilize elected officials and community leaders around important policy issues that impact our fight against hunger. Advocacy efforts at the Freestore Foodbank kicked into high gear last month.

On February 7, several members of our Advocacy team traveled to Frankfort, Kentucky to show support for Hunger Free Kentucky Day, organized by the Kentucky Association of Foodbanks, also known as KAFB. The Freestore Foodbank currently serves nine counties in Kentucky – Kenton, Boone, Campbell, Gallatin, Owen, Grant, Pendleton, Bracken and Mason.

“Hunger is a deeply entrenched problem in Kentucky. One in six adults has no idea where their next meal will come from and the rate is even worse for children,” said Tamara Sandberg, executive director of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.

Advocacy kicks into high gear in February

During Hunger Free Kentucky Day, it was encouraging to see strong support from legislators on both sides of the aisle for federal nutrition programs such as The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), which supplies food to our hungry neighbors in Kentucky, and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which provides meals to seniors.  There was also widespread recognition for successful initiatives such as the Farms to Food Banks program, which provides fresh, healthy produce to our hungry neighbors in Kentucky while reducing losses for farmers.  In addition, Attorney General Andy Beshear announced the first Annual Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy.  The statewide competition challenges law firms, law schools and legal organizations to donate food and money to support food banks in Kentucky. The campaign gets underway on March 27 and runs through April 7.

On February 14, the Freestore Foodbank Advocacy team traveled to Indianapolis to attend Indiana Statehouse Day and to show our support for the work done by Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, also known as FISH, which is Indiana’s State Association of Food Banks. Freestore Foodbank currently serves three counties in Indiana – Ohio, Dearborn and Switzerland. Several of Indiana’s legislators attended the event and they expressed support for lifting the ban on individuals with past drug felony convictions receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance, or SNAP, benefits. Elected officials also expressed support of the elimination of state asset limits for SNAP.

In Ohio, the Ohio Association of Foodbank’s Lobby Day took place on February 23r.. The Freestore Foodbank Advocacy team traveled to Columbus and met with important lawmakers and their staff.  Joined by other Ohio food banks, we advocated for funding that will align all of Ohio’s funded hunger relief efforts within a single request.

“We know that hunger is not only bad for hungry people, but bad for our entire economy and all of us,” said Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks. “And if we can all agree that hunger is both a moral issue and an economic one, we can focus on how to best address it.”

The Freestore currently serves eight counties in Ohio – Hamilton, Clermont, Brown, Adams, Scioto, Pike, Highland and Clinton. Our budget request is for a $30 million per year allocation which will allow Ohio to comprehensively address hunger through the continuation of critical programs such as the Ohio Food Program, the Ohio Agricultural Clearance Program and SNAP.

“With your help and your increased investment in these proven and effective programs, we will be better positioned to ensure that we’re sending families home with real, wholesome food to help them nourish their children,” said Hamler-Fugitt. “We’ll be better equipped to respond to the increasing number of older adults that find themselves in our pantry lines every month when their social security checks run out. We’ll be able to better address multiple barriers facing low-income households through wraparound services. We’ll be better prepared for the task at hand, a moral calling to feed the hungry and an economic responsibility to promote the health and well-being of our most vulnerable neighbors and friends.”

Meet the Volunteer Engagement Team

From Left to Right: Sara Steinkamp, Tawanda Rollins, Taylor Thomas, Maria Hernandez, Stephanie Togneri, and Jillian Young

Meet the Volunteer Engagement Team

You may have noticed a few new faces leading our volunteer efforts at the Freestore Foodbank. Each one of us is excited to be working with our outstanding volunteers.

Sara Steinkamp – Volunteer Engagement Specialist at the Customer Connection Center
Sara is from the West Side of town and her office is located at the Customer Connection Center on Liberty Street. You will run into her if you volunteer in the Food Room. Sara was the Volunteer Coordinator at the Mayerson Distribution Center when she first started at the Freestore in February 2015 and last summer she helped out at the Giving Fields while the farm manager was out on maternity leave. An interesting fact about Sara is that she loves doing pottery.

Tawanda Rollins – Manager of Volunteer Recruitment and Special Events
Tawanda is a hometown girl, born and raised in Cincinnati, but she has also lived Panama, Central America for three years with her mom. Her office is at the Customer Connection Center  located on Liberty Street, but during event season you’ll find her at the Jeff & Darlene Anderson Family Building on Central Parkway and at most of the special events. She has been at the Freestore for five years! An interesting fact about Tawanda is that she loves to prepare soul food and watch others enjoy her cooking.

Taylor Thomas – Volunteer Engagement Specialist at the Mayerson Distribution Center
Taylor is originally from Alsip, IL and joined the team in August 2016 after moving to Northern Kentucky from Central Florida. One fun fact about Taylor is that she finds cleaning therapeutic! Some of you may know Taylor as one of the Volunteer Coordinators at the Mayerson Distribution Center, but she has recently transitioned to scheduling individuals and groups for both the Distribution Center and Giving Fields. She is the voice you hear when you call our volunteer hotline or when you send us an email.

Maria Hernandez – Volunteer Coordinator at the Mayerson Distribution Center
Maria is brand new to the team; she joined the team last month and jumped right in assisting with leading groups at the Mayerson Distribution Center. She is from El Salvador and one thing that you may find interesting about Maria is that she loves to ski! The next time you’re volunteering at the Distribution Center, don’t forget to welcome her to the Freestore Foodbank!

Stephanie Togneri – Director of Volunteer Engagement
Stephanie has been with the Freestore for a little over two years now.  Her official home base is the Customer Connection Center on Liberty, but you will find her everywhere our volunteers are in action.  Like many of our team leaders, Stephanie brought groups to the Freestore for many years before joining our team.  She lives in Kenwood with her husband, Paul and her always entertaining beagle, Geno.

Jillian Young – Volunteer Coordinator at the Mayerson Distribution Center
Jillian is from Cincinnati and she joined the team in September 2016. You’ll find her leading groups and driving the forklift at the Distribution Center. Jillian’s fun fact is that she loves kayaking and is learning how to weld.  Jillian is our “Jane” or “Jillian” of all trades because she is very handy with her hands!


Feeding Hungry Children:
Check Out Power Pack (March 29 – April 15)

Check Out Power Pack KrogerCan you spare 15 – 20 minutes a week to volunteer? Have you always wanted to get involved at the Freestore, but never had the time due to a busy schedule? Well, here is your chance! There are still a few Kroger stores available for adoption through Check-Out Power Pack. This is a convenient way for Kroger customers to support the Power Pack program as they check out their groceries. Volunteers are needed to help ensure the tear coupons and coupon holders are available at each check-out counter of the store they’ve adopted. Click here to see if a Kroger store near you is up for adoption.

We’ve had lots of requests to volunteer already, but don’t worry; there will be lots of opportunities to join in on the fun. Many of hands are needed to open the farm and start the planting process. Families, schools, groups, and individuals are all welcome to volunteer at the Giving Fields. Groups will be needed Tuesdays – Saturdays. Stay tuned for more information.

Hunger WalkVolunteer or Walk for Hunger

Catholic Charities: The Story of a Unique Partnership

Mediaon February 27th, 2017Comments Off on Catholic Charities: The Story of a Unique Partnership

Catholic Charities: The Story of a Unique PartnershipMary Woods is a resident of the tiny community of Peebles in Adams County, OH.  She and her husband are disabled.   They also have custody of their 13 year old grandson.  Mary is on a fixed income. She receives $180 every month in Social Security. No matter how thrifty she tries to be, she is not able to make ends meet.  “A month is a long time,” she says and admits that towards the end she runs out of pretty much everything.

Mary is a regular visitor to the local food pantries, especially the ones that are organized by Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio in collaboration with the Freestore Foodbank. Her access is dependent on whether she can find someone to share the burden of paying for gas to get there and she is always borrowing money or trying to hitch a ride.  Mary is very grateful for the program. “If it were not for the food pantries, we would not eat much,” she says.  With a 13 year old and growing grandson at home, she appreciates the nutritious foods such as meat and eggs that are offered at the Catholic Charities’ mobile pantries and counts that as a unique feature that sets them apart from others.  Scott Stephens, Director of Parish Outreach at Catholic Charities comments, “This is all part of our effort to feed the flock.”

Catholic Charities: The Story of a Unique PartnershipCatholic Charities Southwestern Ohio has served the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for over a hundred years.  With the mission to “serve, enlighten and empower” the poor and the vulnerable in society, Catholic Charities collaborates with the Freestore Foodbank to make healthy and nutritious food accessible to people who live in food deserts in rural parts of Ohio.   Their “Food for All” campaign to end hunger by 2025 was born out of the message from Pope Francis to “go out and meet others where they really are” during his visit to the United States in September 2015. Through their partnership with the Freestore Foodbank, Catholic Charities currently operates 5 mobile pantries a month in 5 counties in southwest Ohio  –Clermont, Clinton, Highland, Adams and Brown.

Freestore Foodbank and Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio partner to provide Power Packs to students at three schools in Cincinnati – St. Clement, St. Martin of Tours and Sts. Peter and Paul Academy.  Power Packs are small packs of food that are sent home with school children in order to ensure that they have something to eat over the weekend. They are in the process of opening school pantries as well this month in all three schools. The pantries will be open once a month and are expected to serve close to 350 families in total. “The school pantries will carry shelf-stable food – so right now it’ll be mostly boxes and cans. One of the schools has a freezer and we are hoping to be able to make use of it in the near future,” adds Stephens.

Since last February, Catholic Charities has worked with the Freestore Foodbank to serve 140,000 meals to 6,803 families including kids, retirees and seniors. Catholic Charities greatly values the opportunity to collaborate. Dan Sarell, Director of Mission Advancement remarks, “The partnership with the Freestore Foodbank helps us pick better sites and offer more choices of food at our pantries.”  It is through cooperative efforts that food and access to it, gives folks like Mary Woods and her family, a chance, a chance to thrive.
