Sponsor Spotlight on The FreeStore FoodBank

If you've attended our annual fall conference the last few years, you may have noticed the FreeStore Foodbank's presence as well as their various enterprises including Cincinnati COOKS! and FeedingWorks. This year is no different.

If you plan on attending the conference, and we hope you do, you will notice the recognizable barrels prominently displayed in the main lobby. This year we'd like to encourage EVERYONE to contribute. 

And to sweeten the pot (or barrel!) anyone that contributes, big or small, besides knowing that the generous act of donating a non-perishable item provides more than 20 million meals annually to our hungry neighbors in the Tri-State area, will be entered in to win a prize!

Some of the most-needed donations* include:

  • Canned meat products (tuna, chicken, ham, spaghetti with meatballs, chili with meat and beans, beef stew, etc.)
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned vegetables and fruits
  • Canned soups
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Personal care items (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, feminine hygiene products, disposable diapers)

*Please, no glass items
