One of the great things about living in Cincinnati is taking the opportunities to volunteer and give back the community. Over the weekend we went and helped to sort food at the Freestore Food Bank in conjunction with the Act Out program.
The Food Bank services dozens of local agencies providing provisions for soup kitchens, emergency shelters, and even in school programs for children. Freestore relies on food donations as much as it relies on volunteer labor hours and monetary donations to pay for transportation of the creates of food and the administrative staff. The operation is so well run that 94% of all financial donations go straight to helping the hungry. Be a good Cincinnati neighbor and volunteer at the Freestore Food Bank.
