The Freestore Foodbank’s Thanksgiving food distribution begins Monday and runs through Wednesday at our Customer Connection Center located at 112 East Liberty Street in Over-the-Rhine. Each household receives a box of food (containing canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned cranberry or pumpkin, stuffing or rice, onions, potatoes, apples, macaroni and cheese, and brownie mix or other dessert), a bag of produce, and (depending on family size) either a chicken, turkey or ham.
The hours are listed below:
Monday, November 22 – 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday, November 23 – 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday, November 24 – 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Over the Thanksgiving and December holidays, the Freestore Foodbank expects to distribute more than 700,000 pounds of food, enough to feed approximately 20,000 families.
