14th Annual Hunger Walk and 5K Run

The 14th Annual Hunger Walk and 5K Run presented by Kraft Heinz is an event to benefit community partner agencies of the Freestore Foodbank. The event gives our partner food pantries, soup kitchens, elder and childcare facilities, shelters and community centers – with the opportunity to raise money for their efforts. Community partner agencies form teams and raise money through pledges of support from their community. Last year's Hunger Walk and 5K Run raised more than $278,000 for our partner organizations.

23rd Annual Rubber Duck Regatta

On Sunday, September 3, as many as 200,000 rubber ducks will swim in the Ohio River along the Serpentine Wall. The first prize winner will receive a Honda HR-V courtesy of Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Honda Dealers, and possibly $1 million, if their duck is the “KEMBA Million Dollar Duck.” The second prize winner will receive $100 in gift cards from Kroger every week for a year ($5,200 total), and five additional winners will receive $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union. Ducks go on sale in mid-late July. The Rubber Duck Regatta is the Freestore Foodbank’s largest fundraising event, raising over a million dollars a year for the last three years.

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.
