The staff at Whole Again International are great! When you're coordinating something as worthy and beneficial as providing services (summer camps &after school programs) to families in need, the last thing you want to worry about is how you're going to feed the children. The meals are always on time and if there was ever an issue, they were there to fix it right away. They are family to us and we're happy to be part of their family as well.

Whole Again provides food and enrichment for Cincinnati urban youth during the summer months when the schools are closed. They are a wonderful group who use best practices while administering services to all who participate in their program. It's no wonder that the numbers of site partners is constantly increasing every year!

Whole Again is a premier organization that serves the Hamilton County area. They serve breakfast, lunch and weekend meals to Cincinnati's most vulnerable population--it's children!! Since 2005, Whole Again continues to perform these services using a permanent skeletal staff, seasonal summer staff and many volunteers to feed over 1,000 children annually at a number of site partner locations.

Although,Whole Again does a lot, they could impact thousands more with additional funding!

Whole Again has supported the Su Casa Hispanic Center for 13 years and our summer enrichment program for young children since 2008.

Su Casa's Vacaciones Útiles serves about 60 children from pre-k to the second grade each summer. Whole Again provides breakfast and lunch for all of our kids every day of the summer camp. Additionally, Whole Again provides food for families to bring home on the weekends. These meals are very important during the summer for low-income families and children that are not getting nutritious food at school.

The parents appreciated the weekend meals greatly-- we gave out extra food at the end of each day and week, and we never had any left over! I know this is a valuable resource that helped to feed kids and their families in the area.

Whole Again, their staff and many volunteers, have touched so many lives In Greater Cincinnati. Not just with the meals, education and ‘Fun to be Fit’ for children, but also the community through the engagement and inspiration of Pastor Chandler. As Whole Again was a multi-year investee of Social Venture Partners Cincinnati, we have been proud of their growth in community impact, but every one of us working with them has grown as well in understanding the issues and how a full belly can help to overcome. Best of luck and keep up the good work!

It is because of Whole Again International the reason The Union Foundation got involved with doing a Summer Food and Enrichment Program. Our organization has been able to feed over 600 children a healthy breakfast and lunch for free, educate them to prevent summer learning lost, and go on different outings during the summer. We thank Pastor Chandler for his vision.

I have been a frequent volunteer with Whole Again. They provide healthy meals and constructive activity for children in need. This programs teaches them to eat better. It is wonderful to see how Whole Again has grown over the years. A friend of mine has all 3 of her great grandchildren at the Whole Again site at New Prospect Baptist Church. This gives her much needed relief in the summer and the children's lives are enriched as a result of participating.

Whole Again has been a great help to the City of Cincinnati by providing nourishment and educational enrichment to all these children. This has helped them on the road to becoming productive members of society. I previously served as a volunteer board member and now serve on the advisory board. They deserve 5 stars!!

NEST Community Learning Center partnered with Whole Again to provide nutritious lunches to the at-risk kids in our Loveland Community. Whole Again was fantastic in providing training and support for our first year. We had the added challenge of being their first outdoor site. They did a great job being flexible with our needs and we appreciated their support.

Every summer when school is out, I am extremely grateful for the role Whole Again plays in empowering and equipping churches to feed children - body, mind and spirit. Our children, their families and their communities all benefit from Whole Again's effort to help people put their faith in action.

This community houses 703 families located in the 10th poorest zip code, of the 1,000 zip codes in the State of Ohio. The average family makes $14,000 dollars or less per year. Whole Again has provided a very much needed nutrition free lunch program, for the 100 children at the Villages at Roll Hill Community Center for the past 3 summers. By providing meals, 5 days a week, during the summer, allows the families funds to last longer in the month! The meals are not only nutrition, they are very much liked by the children! Whole Again provides 3 hot meals and 2 cold meals; per week, which are some of the children only hot meals over the summer. This non-profit has touch so many family lives and is such a blessing to this community.
This is why I feel that they should be recognize as a great non-profit!
