…………………..Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. …………………..

Website MLK

I am very grateful to receive this prestigious award. It is an honor to be considered and in any way associated with Dr. King’s heroic life and legacy. I gracefully accept this award for the Over-The-Rhine and Walnut Hills Kitchens and Pantry and everyone that worked and volunteered to make it possible for us to reach out to our fellow citizens with love, warmth and comradery.

My life has been extremely blessed…I was raised by parents devoted to God, each other and their family.  I can remember how my parents emphasized the importance that we are all equal, We just arrived in each other’s lives from different places, with different lifestyles and with different beliefs.

The key to success and happiness is to embrace these differences, celebrate and enjoy them. Now you can understand why my parents and now me, have the utmost respect for Dr. King’s life and what he fought for. He didn’t fight just for racial rights- he fought for All Human Rights! His many quotes were inspirational and poetic, but most importantly they were the actual road map of how he walked through life – as a man with the courage to do what was right in the face of injustice and criticism.

My parents always said, “don’t tell me, show me”- Dr. King showed us by his actions.  My parents said, “It doesn’t matter where you live or what you own, but simply how you treat and respect everyone around you. Dr. King said “to judge others by the content of their heart”.

Promising something is easy, but following through to completion is tough. So, I gratefully thank you for this great award and accept for everyone who stepped up to help the Over-The-Rhine and Walnut Hills Kitchens and Pantry honor Dr. Kings example.

As Dr. King stated; “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”   “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Thank you!  God Bless you and your families!

Show your compassion

Dear Friends,

This time of year, we commemorate World Food Day and National Food Bank Week in October and National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week in November as a time for us all to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing hunger. bbbAccording to Feeding America, over 18% of Hamilton Country residents face food insecurity. “Hunger and poverty often go hand in hand, but poverty is not the ultimate determinant of food insecurity. People living above the poverty line are often at risk of hunger as well. Research demonstrates that unemployment, rather than poverty, is a better predictor of food insecurity among people living in the United States.”

At the Over-The-Rhine and Walnut Hills Kitchens and Pantry over 90% of your support goes directly toward our programs. During this busy holiday season we find ourselves struggling to make ends meet. Please consider making a donation today!

You can safely and securely donate to our Kitchens and Pantry online. Save the cost of mailing in your donations at www.overtherhinekitchen.org and click on “Make a Donation”. You may also make a donation by sending your check to: Over-The-Rhine and Walnut Hills Kitchens and Pantry, P.O. Box 6045,
