Donations Making a Difference
Freestore Foodbank is committed to providing aid to those in need. With 94% of donations, including both in-kind and monetary, going directly to programs and services, the organization is able to help provide three meals for every dollar donated. It is alarming to know that one in seven neighbors in the tristate area is at risk of hunger, with more than 80,000 children affected. Freestore Foodbank’s CFO, Tim Weidner, emphasizes the importance of donations and the organization’s commitment to delivering quality service to the community.

As a non-profit, the Freestore Foodbank prides itself in being open and transparent about where our donors’ dollars are going. It is important for us to let the community know how their investments are being used at the Freestore Foodbank.

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 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.”
