In the first week of the Freestore Foodbank virtual food drive WCPO 9 and Furniture Fair raised over $64,000. Due to more learning taking place at home the need for food is now even greater.
In our tristate area we have over 76,000 children who are uncertain where their next meal may come. Due to COVID-19, we expect to see that number increase by at least 10% from students who aren’t getting food provided during the school day. Power Packs are packed by Freestore Foodbank volunteers who deliver to schools in 20 counties in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana. Each pack contains meal items and snacks for kids. Furniture Fair has teamed up with Freestore Foodbank to help our community and the children of today! You can donate to support the children in our area.
