Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan
The Freestore Foodbank is committed to serving our hungry neighbors to the best of our ability.

The Problem at Hand
One in six neighbors in our Tri-State area is at risk of hunger. More than 80,000 are kids.

Addressing the Need in Our Community
The Freestore Foodbank has a goal to eliminate a 30 million meal gap by distributing 50 million meals by our 50th anniversary in 2021.

A Plan of Action
We’ve got a plan of action to get there. It involves a variety of approaches that include engaging our customers with enhanced and holistic emergency services to help them become stable and secure, expanding access to healthy and nutritious food, improving long-term stability for customers through Freestore and other workforce development programs, and instilling a culture of operational excellence throughout our organization.

A Message from Our President & CEO
The Freestore Foodbank’s Leadership Team and I have worked together to develop a new Strategic Plan that we hope will show how each of our efforts will move our organization towards our ultimate goal of moving our customers towards self-sufficiency,” said Kurt Reiber, Freestore Foodbank President and CEO.

Our Blueprint
Our Strategic Plan  shows how we plan to reach our goal of fighting hunger and bringing hope to those who need it most.

“The 50 by 50 strategic plan was initiated to ensure that we continue to move towards a future without hunger,” said Reiber. “We are working with you and so many great partners to help make this possible.  We know that the need is real and we will keep on working with your help to meet that need.”
