The Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank has started a relief fund in response to the devastating tornadoes last week in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.

The Freestore, a member of the Feeding America network, is the largest food aid provider in the Greater Cincinnati area. Some of the member agencies the Freestore partners with were impacted by the storms.

The Freestore has been providing food aid to communities struck by the tornadoes, including a distribution yesterday in Moscow, Ohio. That town saw around 80 percent of its homes damaged in the storm.

You can donate to the relief fund at their web site. The Freestore says the donated funds “will be evenly distributed to our member agencies in devastated areas, and used to purchase items they need to bring comfort and stability back into the lives of the people in our communities.”
