Freestore Foodbank to introduce new weekly drive-up food distribution to help families through winter months of pandemic.

Since March, at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Freestore Foodbank has coordinated and produced emergency food distributions in neighborhoods throughout Greater Cincinnati. Beginning Wednesday, December 9 Freestore Foodbank will offer drive-up food distribution with a varying menu from week to week at our Freestore Foodbank Mayerson Distribution Center on Tennessee Avenue in Bond Hill. These drive-up food distributions will mimic our emergency food distribution efforts but offer families a different product mix each week as long as supply lasts and demand is high within the community. These new weekly distribution events are not to be confused with our drive-up Holiday Food Distribution scheduled for December 18 at the Cincinnati Reds Youth Academy.

“Right now, due to the pandemic, we estimate that at least 110,000 children in our tristate at risk of hunger. That number keeps growing and we have to do all we can to make sure families have enough food on their table to get through this difficult winter stretch. Our goal as we test out these new weekly drive-up distributions at our distribution center on Tennessee Avenue is to provide food to at least 500 families, safely, socially distanced, with minimal contact, in a limited time frame offering a unique mix of food. One week may be chicken, dairy and produce and the next week a seafood item, produce and orange juice,” said Freestore Foodbank President and CEO, Kurt Reiber.
