Gray’s Fox affiliate WXIX Cincinnati started a virtual food drive on April 10 to benefit the Freestore Foodbank to help area families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. "The Heart of Cincinnati Virtual Food Drive," which will be held virtually to abide by social distancing guidelines, runs until May 10.
