March was productive and busy as the Freestore Foodbank gears up for a fun-filled spring and summer ahead. The Healthy Harvest Mobile Market added a few new locations this month as a part of our efforts to improve access to fresh and healthy food in the community. Cincinnati COOKS! graduated another fabulous class of chefs and LIFT the TriState Program also celebrated the graduation of Class #2.

Healthy Harvest Mobile Market
Freestore Foodbank’s Healthy Harvest Mobile Market opened two new sites early this month – at Price Hill, Mt. Airy and Avondale. Congratulations to our fabulous team of staff and volunteers who worked hard to make this happen.
