No Child Goes Hungry (NCGH) is pleased to provide a $1000 donation to My Why, a Cincinnati non-profit founded by inner-city school teachers to provide nourishment, access, sports and inspired mentoring to Cincinnati children living in poverty. My Why offers a Food for Thought program which provides healthy food to children in the West End, Lower Price Hill, and River Road areas of the City on weekends and when school is not in session. NCGH’s donation will support its fundraising efforts to add a Food Truck to its Food for Thought program to be used to deliver hot and healthy meals to families in need, particularly during the COVID-19 crisis when schools are closed.
We are here to help children living in poverty meet and exceed their basic needs, allowing them to grow where they are planted,” said Mary Beth Knight from My Why. “Food for Thought helps to ensure that food-insecure students are receiving healthy nutrients when they are not at school. With our food truck, we will provide breakfast and lunch on school holidays, weekends and summer breaks, and during the coronavirus mandated school closures.”
My Why currently serves 1800 children in need in Cincinnati.
We applaud My Why’s innovation and persistence in this difficult time,” said Kären Rasmussen, NCGH founder, and director. “It is a privilege to partner with organizations such as My Why that refuse to let anything stand in their way of ensuring no child goes to bed hungry—not even a pandemic. We are pleased to support My Why’s vision of putting its Food for Thought program on wheels. Let’s feed some kids!”
