Montgomery Community Church donates food to NEEDS

October 5 and 6, 2019 was the WE CAN food collection weekend at Montgomery Community Church on Montgomery road. The church donates non-perishable food to NEEDS 4 times a year!

Thank you to Montgomery Community Church and to Sarah Bowman for heading this up!

If your church would like to organize a food collection for NEEDS, please contact our Food Pantry Director Maureen Flanagan at m2flanagan@aol.com.

Like to Blog? NEEDS needs you!

There are so many ways we can combat poverty and hunger in Cincinnati. Donations of food and finances are wonderful. Time volunteering is another great help.

NEEDS is in need of a volunteer to compose blog posts for our website and Facebook pages. You will provide a very valuable service helping us communicate our services to families in north east Cincinnati.

This position can be done from home and might take 1-2 hours a week.
Attending monthly board meetings (fourth Monday of the month in the evening in Kenwood, Ohio) is highly encouraged as well so you are aware of the events and news to share on our website and social media.

Some knowledge of WordPress, our website platform, and Facebook would be helpful, but we can train you.

If you are interested or know someone who might be, please contact NEEDS current website editor Carol Topp at CincyNEEDSTreasurer@gmail.com.

Emergency feeding organizations such as NEEDS are working with Freestore Foodbank to help give hope to those who need it most.

This partnership allows NEEDS to purchase food, produce, dairy and meat items for free or at greatly reduced cost. This means that our donation dollars get stretched further and we can offer more emergency financial assistance to families in Northeast Cincinnati.

Together, NEEDS and the Freestore Foodbank fight hunger and help bring hope to those who need it most.


NEEDS provides food, personal care items and emergency financial assistance to individuals and families in northeast Cincinnati.
