Thanksgiving Food Distribution

Our 3-day THANKSGIVING FOOD DISTRIBUTION powered by Delta Airlines was a grand success. Over the span of three incredible days we distributed meals to over 6,500 households, which equates to slightly over 21,000 individuals. We are grateful for the help of our nearly 1,100 tireless volunteers who worked with us to make this a reality. Thank you Cincinnati for helping us make a difference in the lives of our neighbors!

Congratulations to Class 165 of Cincinnati COOKS! We are very proud of our graduates!
