My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Churches Active in Northside, Cincinnati, OH, USA
I started volunteering at CAIN after graduating from university - and 7 years later, with the past 3 of those serving on CAIN's board, I count myself lucky to have come across this organization and to be able to contribute to their wonderful mission in my own small way.
CAIN is a grassroots, nutrition-based, choice food pantry that treats its guests as equals - each week, CAIN provides a free weekly community meal for anyone and everyone - thousands are served each year, and come together over a fresh nutritious meal. CAIN also operates its pantry three times a week, with an emphasis on healthy fresh produce - and there are always samples of fresh fruits and vegetables for guests to try!
But aside from the programs that have such a positive impact on our community, CAIN is rare in that it also CREATES community - treating everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve, and forging bonds between neighbors. CAIN is a very special place, and I feel so fortunate to be a part of it.
