2 tons of food donated to Freestore Foodbank

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Green BEAN Delivery, an online home delivery service that provides organic produce and natural groceries to Midwest members, donated 2.2 tons of canned food on Wednesday to the Freestore Foodbank.

In November, Green BEAN Delivery kicked off its annual Constant Canned Food Drive by asking members to place non-perishable food items in their delivery bins to be picked up and dropped off at Freestore Foodbank. The company pledged to match every pound donated through December 31 with donations of fresh produce.

"We are truly appreciative of Green BEAN Delivery's continued support," said Kurt Reiber, president and CEO of Freestore Foodbank. "This generous donation will go toward helping to provide more than 1,500 healthy meals to our neighbors in need."

The Freestore Foodbank distributes more than 19 million pounds of food annually to 20 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The organization's goal is to provide emergency food and offer services aimed at creating self-reliance. It strives to be a community leader to end hunger and address its causes.

"Thanks to the generosity and compassion of our members and partners, we were able to donate 6,710 pounds of food to local food banks in four cities during our holiday Constant Canned Food Drive initiative in 2011," said Matt Ewer, president and co-founder of Green BEAN Delivery. "In 2012, we nearly tripled our donations, to nearly 17,000 pounds, and we couldn't be more pleased. We're extremely proud of our members who celebrated the true spirit of the holidays by giving back."

Since inception, Green BEAN Delivery has invested more than $5 million into local food economies throughout the Midwest. 

Husband and wife team Matt Ewer and Elizabeth Blessing founded Green BEAN Delivery in 2007 to make organic produce and natural groceries convenient, affordable and accessible to Midwest communities. Focused on home delivery, the company distributes organic, local and sustainably grown foods directly to consumers' doorsteps.
