Having been involved with a number of non-profit organizations throughout Ohio, CHA stands out for its tremendous efforts to reduce childhood hunger. As a mother, it is painful to comprehend that there are children that are under nourished right here in our own backyard. CHA has recognized the need to support families through direct feeding programs, educational outreach, and through a number of results-driven programs that benefit children right here in Ohio. The staff is remarkable in its ability to deliver results based on the mission of this very important organization.
CHA is a mission-driven organization making a difference for children every day in the State of Ohio. Its tagline says it all: feeding hungry minds and bodies. Whether assisting day care providers in 80 of the 88 counties in Ohio to provide nutritious food to children in their care, advocating and educating school districts as to how to run school breakfast programs or providing after school programs that teach healthy food choices and an active lifestyle, CHA is improving the lives and wellbeing of children now and for their futures. In the last several years it has expanded its geographical reach to Cincinnati, Southeast and Northwest Ohio, complementing its years of work in Cental Ohio, Dayton and Cleveland.
The broad scope of Childrern's Hunger Alliance results in touching a vulnerable population throughout Ohio. From toddlers in home day care to High School students preparing for testing, good nutritious food provides a foundation for success. I am please that physical fitness has become a focus as well.
Hundreds of volunteers in our community gather together in many capacities and roles to support Children's Hunger Alliance in reaching children in need. Thousands and thousands of children are reached throughout the state of Ohio. This organization serves and educates children regarding education and fitness in a way that is easy to support. No matter your politics, religion or race everyone understands the need to help children who are hungry. Children's Hunger Alliance allows the community to be a part of making sure children are fed nutritious meals and educated about fitness and nutrition to make an immediate and lifelong impact on those children, their families and the community as a whole. I am so glad they know how to connect with the community to allow us to help.
This is a well organized group that makes an impact. Its staff members are dedicdated and hard working and know how to convey the group's message and obtain results in reducing childhood hunger.
