CAIN is a wonderful service for people that live in Northside in Cincinnati, which is a food desert. As manager of the Northside Farmers Market, we partner with CAIN on many of our efforts to increase food access in our area. They have been instrumental in making sure our vendors do not have waste food or their efforts by allowing them to donate unsold food for distribution at the food pantry the next morning. CAIN continues to support the farmers market with special projects, such as cooking on a budget. We have collaboratively developed a recipe brochure with five recipes that feeds a family of 4 for $50, all with items found at the market. Additionally, we offer cooking classes to learn how to make the recipes. CAIN is truly a wonderful organization that helps a lot of people.
If I could rate this organization with more than 5 starts I certainly would. Having worked in the nonprofit world and been a board member of several organizations I can unambiguously celebrate the mission driven, client focused work that CAIN does in the community. Top to bottom they are true servants to their clients and welcome those they serve with respect and compassion while remaining centered around assisting with basic needs. As a volunteer I look forward to making my small contribution every week.
This is a wonderful and collaborative ministry that serves its community with passion, compassion and generosity. Every dollar given to this ministry is used wisely, not only to assist with needs, but to help those in need address the root causes of that need.
I worked with the children and the christmas program this is a program that knows what they are doing it is so organized and kind. There is no paternalism it is all about sharing Gods bounty for others. They are so creative getting so many other programs to gether to witness and support the nieghbor hood I still send all my clients from the neighborhood there and they always feel loved and appreciated and in turn love Cain back
I like how CAIN sends out one-time requests. For example, there was a woman in need of an undergarment, I happened to have some Kohl's Coupons/cash and was able to make the purchase. Sometimes it's the small steps that make giant leaps.
