LWVCA'S SUMMER TOUR - FREESTORE FOODBANK!

Saturday, August 18, 2018, 10-11:30 am

This victory would not be possible without the support of our members and donors.

Close-toed shoes are required for the tour. Please join us for a guided tour of the Freestore Foodbank's Mayerson Distribution Center where volunteers are providing typical activities that include Power Pack assembly, food sorting, and senior box assembly. Our tour guide, Ragani Menon, will inform us about the many and varied programs and services that the organization provides. We will have ample time to ask questions during and after the tour.

The Freestore Foodbank began in 1971. Its early beginnings come with a story + a man with a heart to help others. Frank Gerson, a worker at Cincinnati's incinerator, saw useable household items being tossed away. He began collecting those items and distributing them to disadvantaged families. From that humble beginning, in the following years, the organization evolved into working to reduce hunger in the Tri-State area. They have the tremendous support of more than 10,000 volunteers and a network of 400 community partner agencies. This includes food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, community centers, program sites, senior centers and daycare facilities.

Dwinelva Zackery, St. Elizabeth Healthcare "The work of the Freestore Foodbank is vitally important to address barriers to self-sufficiency among the most vulnerable in our community. I believe the vast array of quality services provided are essential to building capacity and addressing the broad impact of poverty. Fulfilling the basic need of food for our families is a social justice issue. I look forward to working hand in hand with the dedicated Freestore team to make a difference in our region."
