Freestore Foodbank Logo

The Liberty Street Market is the largest neighborhood food pantry among all Freestore Foodbank member agencies. It is a choice food pantry offering clients foods of their choice according to family composition, nutritional needs, cooking availability and tastes. Client choices are augmented by fresh produce, pre-selected meals and personal hygiene products. Homeless clients receive special boxes with foods that can be consumed without heating.


Due to COVID-19 the Holiday Food Box Distribution will operate differently this year for 2020. Instead of our usual holiday food box distribution where we provide a prepacked holiday food box, we will provide all of the holiday food item favorites in the market for shoppers including a turkey! Holiday food items will be available beginning Monday, November 2nd through Wednesday, November 25th. As customers shop for their normal groceries they will also be able to shop for their favorite holiday foods.

Volunteer Task: As carts are returned from the Front Bay, volunteers will wipe down the carts using sanitizer wipes or spray and add appropriate number of shopping bags to the cart for shoppers.

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.
