About Freestore Foodbank


112 E Liberty Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202, US

Mission Statement

Freestore Foodbank’s mission is to improve lives by eliminating hunger in partnership with our community, and our vision is to create a hunger-free, healthy, and thriving community. To achieve this vision, our objectives are to provide nutritious food, connect to support services and offer a pathway from crisis to stability.


For the last 50 years, we've grown from one man's passion for helping his neighbors into one of the region's largest food banks.

We distribute over 10 million pounds of food annually in 20 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana through a trusted network of over 400 local member agencies such as soup kitchens and shelters, food pantries, churches, daycare and senior centers, and many other community and social services organizations.

Unlike other food banks in the area, we operate a Client Services Center in Over-the-Rhine, which works to meet the needs of our community's most vulnerable citizens, including the homeless, the unemployed, the working poor, and families in crisis. By providing emergency food, we work to determine the root causes of poverty and food insecurity, and we are able to offer services aimed at creating self-reliance. When people come to us for food, we help them find the other things they may need -- a safe place to live, access to affordable healthcare, clothing or job skills and placement. For our work, food is not the end product, rather it is the beginning of a much larger conversation to help our community's citizens work toward self-reliance.
