Nourish Your Neighborhood - Our Race Charity Beneficiary

Who We Are

Nourish Your Neighborhood is the vision of thirteen participants in the Leadership Lexington Class of 2015. Nourish Your Neighborhood was birthed by an awareness that there are children and families in our neighborhoods who struggle to find their next meal and a personal conviction to care for others. It is our shared love of good food, a commitment to local restaurants, and a desire to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors, that brought our group together.

The members of the Nourish Your Neighborhood project group met through Leadership Lexington, a program sponsored by the Lexington Chamber of Commerce. Brought together by the vision of one member, we are committed to feeding our neighbors by connecting local restaurant patrons to those who are hungry their neighborhoods and communities through ongoing opportunities to donate a meal as they dine out.

With varied backgrounds and values, each group member has been instrumental in the development of Nourish Your Neighborhood. We are motivated by the idea of helping just one child, one family at a time and desire to make an impact in feeding our neighbors who are hungry. Creating the opportunity for neighbors to care for neighbors by paying it forward to those in need, while supporting businesses owned by local owners, embodies our commitment to helping families, giving hope, and serving others.

What We Do

Nourish Your Neighborhood seeks to partner with local restaurants who are willing to create an opportunity for patrons to purchase a meal for those who are hungry, especially children, in their own neighborhoods. Motivated by the desire to feed those who are hungry, especially children in our neighborhoods, Nourish Your Neighborhood focuses on breaking down the barriers to accessing formal food programs by providing meals to families at restaurants in their own neighborhoods, fulfilling the immediate need for nourishment and encouraging them to dine together when possible.

How does it work?

Nourish Your Neighborhood partners with restaurants to create options and opportunities for patrons to donate, turning money into meals. Patron donations will be converted to gift cards for the participating restaurant and provided to family resource centers in neighborhood schools, to use as a resource for the children and families in need.

We see it as a win-win-win! A WIN for the restaurant, a WIN for the patron who donates, and a WIN for the person in the neighborhood who receives a meal.

You can support Nourish Your Neighborhood's efforts by dining at participating restaurants and making a donation or donating directly to the Nourish Your Neighborhood 501(c)(3) fund held by the Bluegrass Community Foundation. The money donated will go directly to children in need through the purchase of gift cards at Nourish Your Neighborhood partner restaurants and provided to family resource centers in neighborhood schools and given to children and families in need of a meal.

How you can help?

Restaurants interested in participating can reach Nourish Your Neighborhood by emailing nourishyourneighborhood@gmail.com. We would love to hear from you! We have a variety of ways your business can choose to participate and will work with you to find the best option. We will provide supporting information and materials about our program for you to offer in the restaurant as well as advertising about your involvement.
