Over the years, our supporters have made it possible for us to further our mission to provide food and services, create stability, and further self-reliance for people in crisis. However, there is still much more work to be done because there is no simple solution to the problems of poverty and hunger. In fact, according to the most recent data, Cincinnati still ranks second in the country for childhood poverty. The number of people in need of our services is growing.
The Freestore Foodbank created an Endowment Fund in 1998 to ensure stability for our organization and its ability to provide essential services to the community for years to come. The endowment addresses current issues and future needs we cannot yet foresee. Strengthening our endowment fund is both a responsive and responsible choice that will provide the Freestore Foodbank’s leadership the peace of mind knowing that the Freestore Foodbank is strengthened to withstand economic downturns and able to provide vital services and programs when they are most needed. The endowment also supports innovation as we look at better ways to deliver food, connection, and hope to people experiencing crisis
A true commitment to fighting hunger and poverty relies on the ongoing partnership between the Freestore Foodbank and its contributors. We may not eradicate hunger in our lifetimes, but with your help we can continue the fight while knowing there will always be a Freestore Foodbank to provide people in crisis with the services they need.
For many of our supporters there is no more powerful way to provide for the future than supporting our Endowment Fund. For more information please contact Mindy Hammer at email@example.com or 513-482-7099.
