The Giving Fields, our community farm located in Northern Kentucky is now buzzing with activity. We welcome volunteers of all ages. This is a great way to spend a summer afternoon with your family or your colleagues from work.

In early May, we re-decorated the wall in the Volunteer area of our Distribution Center on Tennessee Avenue to make it more inviting and appealing. The goal was twofold – to make the environment more comfortable and pleasing and also to use the space to inform, educate and advocate.

On Saturday, May 13, 2017 residents left non-perishable food items next to their mailboxes prior to the time of regular mail delivery. Local donations to the Freestore Foodbank through the 2017 Stamp Out Hunger food drive currently stand at the equivalent of more than 58,100 meals for our hungry neighbors.

Freestore Foodbank’s 14th Annual Hunger Walk and 5K Run presented by Kraft Heinz  was a grand success with more than 4,000 partcipants. We thank every volunteer who helped us with this event. We could not have done it without your help. Congratulations to Mathew Bohrensmeyer, first male to cross the finish line and Sara Habedank, first female to cross the finish line.
