COVINGTON, Ky. — A new fund launched in partnership between Horizon Community Funds and Freestore Foodbank will give supporters a new vehicle for giving to the nonprofit in Northern Kentucky.
Freestore Foodbank is one of the 200 food bank members of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Freestore Foodbank’s mission is to improve lives by eliminating hunger in partnership with our community and to create a hunger-free, healthy, and thriving community. Last year, the Freestore Foodbank provided over 37.7 million meals with 540 community partner agencies, including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, community centers, program sites, senior centers, and daycare facilities.
The longstanding nonprofit also respond to ever-changing community needs with additional support such as workforce training, transportation assistance, vouchers for birth certificates and ID cards, and more. The Freestore Foodbank team also makes referrals to other social services agencies for community members dealing with homelessness, disabilities, mental illness, substance abuse, and domestic violence.
Fund partnerships with Horizon Community Funds provide a flexible way for donors to support their preferred nonprofit organization or charitable effort. Donors can make an endowed gift to support the mission of the nonprofit organization for generations to come or can opt to make a non-endowed gift that provides funding for needs as they arise in Northern Kentucky.
