Childhood Food Solutions of Cincinnati

Problem definition: Hunger most often occurs on late-month non-school days.

Solution: Put food into the hands of elementary-age children to take home right before the (about) 96 late-month, non-school days per year – these children become our couriers into neighborhoods with little food, few cars and limited job skills.

Success Indicators: (1) Double-digit improvement in both reading and math proficiency and (2) Double-digit improvement in preterm and low-weight birth rates.

Impact: The improvement in preterm and low-weight birth rates are expected to run at 500% more than the cost of food – this has the potential to make this “emergency” food intervention sustainable by government funding.
