Our 5000 Club food ministry began in the spring of 2006 as an effort to provide the hospitality of a weekly evening meal to those who in live in our neighborhood, including those without a home to call their own. The program quickly grew to where we are serving close to 200 meals a week, thanks to a strong corp of volunteers. They range from members of our cathedral and other area churches to individuals who simply want to help. Join the effort. Volunteers are always needed, particularly cooks. See the side bar for detail.
TAKE A STAND AGAINST HUNGER:
JOIN THE MEMORIAL DAY HUNGER WALK/RUN
On Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, at 9:00 AM, please join our Christ Church Cathedral team for the 16th Annual Freestore Foodbank’s Hunger Walk and 5K Run. Starting at the Banks, the walk/run helps to raise awareness and funds for the Freestore Foodbank and our two partner agencies food pantries at Church of Our Savior in Mt. Auburn and Churches Active in Northside (CAIN).
Church of Our Savior serves people in crisis through community meals as well as through a food pantry. The church also encourages self-reliance through its networking resources.
CAIN is a similar neighborhood ministry.
The cost of registration is $20 ($25 for a T-shirt). To register online, visit cincinnatihungerwalk.org, search for the Christ Church Cathedral team using the Join a Team button and sign-up. Then plan to meet our team in front of the Freedom Center prior to the run/walk.
