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.
We are proud that our first restaurant partnership is with North Lime Coffee and Donuts! (See more info at http://www.northlimelex.com/).
North Lime's commitment to serving the downtown and North Lexington residents 50% of the proceeds go toward creating gift cards to be provided to our partnering family resource centers.
