December is perhaps one of the busiest months for the Freestore Foodbank. The holidays present a unique set of challenges for our neighbors as they battle the harsh winter weather while struggling to pay their bills, stay warm and serve wholesome meals to their families – all while trying to get in the spirit of the season. This is the time when we work doubly hard to make nourishing meals available to families in the tristate region while also providing other critical services. We are thankful to our many volunteers and donors who made time to make the holiday season a success. Below are a few pics that capture the highlights.

We would like to say thank you to every generous donor and volunteer who supported our 2017 ADOPT- A – FAMILY campaign. Because of your generosity, close to 130 families we serve in the tristate region received beautifully wrapped presents for every member of the household. Thank you Cincinnati for your kindness and compassion this holiday season!

December Holiday Distribution
Our 3-day Holiday Food distribution was a resounding success. Over the span of three incredible days we delivered food to over 14,000 individuals in the tristate region. We are extremely grateful for the help and support of over 1,000 volunteers who gave generously of their time and energy to make this event a success.
