CINCINNATI — A center in Sedamsville is hosting a free-food distribution this Saturday, thanks to the Farmers to Families program.

This weekend, there will be 1,300 boxes of fresh food available for free at Dream Center Cincinnati on Fairbanks Avenue. The boxes will contain things like fresh fruit, vegetables, meats and dairy products.

All of the food comes from Ohio farmers as part of the USDA's Farmers to Families program. Officials estimate each box can feed a family of four for three to five days.

In order to pick up a box, all you have to do is show up. You don't need to present an ID or proof of income.

"A lot of people in the suburbs need groceries, so we just want people to come down, not be ashamed," David Hill, a pastor with LifeChurch Cincinnati, said.

Pickups start at noon on Saturday and go until 3 p.m. at 260 Fairbanks Ave.
