Churches Active In Northside (CAIN) is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony on April 11th at 5:00 pm to celebrate the grand reopening of its renovated pantry. Community need remains high and renovating the pantry allows CAIN to serve more pantry guests and provides a better shopping experience.
The ceremony will be at Northside Neighborhood of Cincinnati – Monday, April 11, 2022, at 5:00 pm
The pandemic and other factors led to CAIN fulfilling 75% more pantry visits annually. CAIN recently completed a $25,000 pantry renovation increasing the pantry space by 40%, adding more efficient refrigerator and freezer units, creating wider aisles, and adding shelving.
All are welcome to attend the ceremony and tour the renovated pantry. Special guests Kurt Reiber (CEO & President at Freestore Foodbank), Reginald Harris (Cincinnati City Councilmember), and Ollie Helm (30-year CAIN volunteer) will cut the ceremonial ribbon.
“Our pantry shopping has been outdoors for much of the pandemic.” says Melissa Meyer, Executive Director of CAIN, “This bigger and more open shopping area will create a safer and more pleasant shopping experience for our guests.”
CAIN is a 501(c)3 community-based ministry that transforms lives and inspires hope by providing nutritious food, personal care items, diapers, crisis assistance and resources. Our mission is connecting our community to challenge poverty by feeding bodies and souls.
