Want to help solve hunger in the Tri-State area? Participating in our annual events is a great way to get involved. In fact, the Freestore Foodbank raises over a quarter of our annual operating budget through fundraising events like:
We are excited to partner with Feeding America and French’s to fight hunger! For every specially-marked bottle of French’s mustard sold between April 18 and November 30, and specially-marked bottles of ketchup sold between April 18 and December 31, one meal* will be donated to a food bank in that community!
Every year, 48 million Americans struggle with food insecurity – including more than 15 million children. That’s 1 in every 7 people in the United States. And that’s why Feeding America exists…to help provide hunger relief through a network of more than 200 community food banks. At Kroger, you can protect your health with a flu shot and help fight hunger! For every flu shot given at our Pharmacy or The Little Clinic, we’ll donate a meal to Feeding America.
42 million people in America struggle with hunger. Many are working families, children and the elderly. Join Feeding America, in partnership with Bank of America, and connect families and communities in need to hope. For every $1 you donate, Bank of America will match your donation with $2* more.
Fast Park is hosting its ninth annual food drive to support Feeding America food banks across the country. If you are traveling between September 12-October 7, please consider bringing a canned good or nonperishable food item to the Fast Park location located at 613 Petersburg Road in Hebron. All donations made at this location will benefit the Freestore Foodbank. In the last eight years, Fast Park has donated more than 50,000 pounds of food and more than $50,000 to food banks across the United States. https://thefastpark.com/travelplanning/post/Canned-Goods-for-a-Good-Cause/

Empty Bowls is a national effort to fight hunger. Our local event is sponsored by the Cincinnati Clay Alliance. Join us Sunday, November 6, 2016. Clay Alliance Potters and other craftspeople, educators community members create and donate hundreds of handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple and delicious meal of soup and bread and get to pick out a hand made bowl to take home and enjoy. The money raised is donated to the Freestore Foodbank, a local organization striving to end childhood hunger in our community. Here's how it works: You purchase tickets, show up at your scheduled seating, choose your favorite bowl (from 100s of bowls!), choose one of the wonderful soup options, then, top it off with some good bread, a drink and dessert. Have a fun time, a great meal – all while helping others in our community.
The Freestore Foodbank and the Cincinnati Bengals are teaming up again for the annual Bengals/Freestore Foodbank Canned Food Drive. Volunteers will collect non-perishable food and monetary donations at each entrance to Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, November 20 prior to the Bengals home game against the Buffalo Bills.
We need volunteers and participants, like you, to make our events a success! You can lead a team in the annual Hunger Walk or watch your rubber duck swim its way to victory in the Ohio River. Please check back regularly for details of our upcoming events.
