ShareCorps - Freestore Foodbank -Critical Response Associate
 
 
 
The Freestore Foodbank provides emergency food and other resources to hungry people across the Tri-State, including 250+ local organizations that serve them in 8 Ohio counties. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has made an already serious food security crisis much worse, creating record unemployment levels, lost wages, missing school meals, and an ongoing recession. We are busy implementing new ways to secure and distribute more food effectively, raise funds to support our mission virtually, support families suffering from food and economic insecurity creatively, recruit and welcome volunteers back to our facility safely, document and communicate about the impact of the pandemic on local families powerfully, and build our overall capacity to meet the increased needs of our neighbors. As a member serving with us, you will join a statewide group of anti-hunger service heroes, all working on different areas of high need at Ohio's foodbanks, all united by a common calling to make a difference in this historic era. Launch the next phase of your career and join our hunger fighting team!
