ShareCorps-Freestore Foodbank, Volunteer Recruitment
Freestore Foodbank serves over 275 member agencies in 20 counties of Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana, and Northern Kentucky. We use food as the start of a conversation with neighbors in crisis about what else is going on in their lives so that we can either offer or refer them to needed services, providing hope for a future of self-sufficiency. A force of over 5700 volunteers support our efforts annually. They do so through distribution efforts that help us provide over 16.2 million meals a year, through providing general or specialized office assistance to support our programs, or by staffing special events to fund our endeavors. Human Resources & Volunteer Management oversees all aspects of the Volunteer Program, providing needed structure as we strive to reinvigorate a pool of over 400,000 volunteers in the Greater Cincinnati area toward fighting hunger.
