Healthy Harvest Mobile Market

Freestore Foodbank's Healthy Harvest Mobile Market

We are a community collaboration with TriHealth, Impact 100 and the Freestore Foodbank. The Healthy Harvest Mobile Market launched in Spring 2016 to promote good nutrition and encourage healthy shopping. By bringing healthy produce into the local community, we provide customers a chance to make nutritious selections near their homes. While our selection changes based on the season, some of our produce has included: cabbage, kale, chard, chives, cilantro, romaine lettuce, spinach, turnips, apples, grapes and bananas.

Volunteers will assist with the setup and breakdown of the market as well stock shelves, set up displays and perform basic customer service skills during operation.

Mobile Market Sites: Price Hill, South Fairmount, Sayler Park, Evanston, Avondale, Clifton, Springdale, West End, Walnut Hills, Bond Hill, Winton Hills, College Hill

Volunteers will meet at the market location.

About Freestore Foodbank

Location:

112 E Liberty Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202, US

Mission Statement

We provide food and services, create stability, and further self-reliance for people in crisis.

Description

In the last 40 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.
