A Cooking Matters class hosted by NNEMAP Food Pantry had a special guest last month – Joe Gilligan, Central Ohio Regional Director for Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), came to learn about the program and partnership. In a press release, Senator Brown expressed support for programming that improves the health of Ohioan’s lives. NNEMAP Food Pantry thanks Local Matters for their community leadership and Senator Brown’s office for their support of nutrition related causes. Read the press release here.

It’s that time of year once again! Fall is in the air, and spectacular music is right on its heels. Harmony for Hunger showcases the talent from several of our supporting network of churches and also features a silent auction for your amusement during intermission. The superb choral group Capriccio Columbus headlines this year’s concert. For a mere $20 per ticket, you get a solid two hours of entertainment. You can’t beat it!
The Big Show will be Friday, November 17, 2017 at Worthington Presbyterian Church. Show time is 7:30, but you’ll want to arrive early to get your silent auction bids in and visit with other NNEMAP friends and supporters.
The Columbus Foundation does tremendous work supporting the region’s nonprofit community. Arts, education, social justice, food insecurity, literacy, animal rights…you name it, you can bet TCF is helping that organization fulfill its mission. It’s, well…it’s pretty awesome to have such an amazing community foundation like that right in our own backyard.
On top of all the incredible work they do on a daily basis, the Columbus Foundation goes above and beyond every once in a while. They call it The Big Give–a huge community-wide, 26-hour fundraising drive to support some 700 area nonprofits. Online donations will be enhanced by a matching funds pool totaling $1.3 million. What’s that mean? If the event brings $1.3 million in donations, the match will be dollar-for-dollar. If $2.6 million is donated, the match will be 50 cents per dollar, and so on.
Credit card processing fees are being covered by a host of generous sponsors, so 100 percent (and then some) of your donation goes straight to NNEMAP. It’s hard to beat this kind of event, so support NNEMAP on October 10, 2017, starting at 10am. For details, click on the highlighted text above or follow this link.
As always, thank you for your generous support of NNEMAP Food Pantry, and thank you for helping us celebrate our partnership with The Columbus Foundation!
