On Sunday, September 1, 200,000 rubber ducks will swim in the Ohio River along the Serpentine Wall. The first prize winner will receive a 2019 Honda CR-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 are available now! The Rubber Duck Regatta is the Freestore Foodbank’s largest fundraising event, raising over a million dollars a year for the last five years.

Food

Before there can be a conversation on possibilities and potential, we must provide food. It is the single most important foundational element linking all people.

Connection

Addressing hunger allows us to have conversations on other issues affecting individuals, families and communities to help create stability and self-reliance for those in need.

Hope

By connecting those in need to services that create stability, we work to determine the root causes of hunger and poverty and build hope in our community.
