Childhood Food Solutions

Presented by Tony Fairhead, Executive Director, and Lisa Hyde-Hill, Board Chair

Carolyn Laemmle 0 1905 Article rating: No rating

It’s been estimated that about half of families living in poverty in Cincinnati don’t have access to sufficient food, especially during periods when children are not in school and don’t receive free or reduced-price meals. Yet, the problem largely remains silent behind closed doors, because parents don’t want to admit they lack adequate resources for such basic needs. Childhood Food Solutions was created to help fill the gap through programs designed to provide food to children in areas of poverty, high-crime and food insecurity in our community. The presenters will describe the results of these efforts and how others can assist.
