OUR VISION Every person in the Greater Cincinnati community has sufficient access to food, essential social services and a safe place of belonging. OUR MISSION To provide stability and hope to guests in need by offering meals, hospitality and services in a safe, respectful environment, located in Over the Rhine.
Our Daily Bread (ODB), an Over-the-Rhine non-profit organization focused on hunger & poverty relief, practices a ministry of hospitality and hope. We offer daily meals in our soup kitchen, emergency assistance, an after-school kids program, and a day shelter for guests to socialize in a safe, respectful, caring environment.
Our Daily Bread History:
While working for the Franciscan Friars in their Development office, Ruth "Cookie" Vogelpohl saw a gentleman digging through the garbage can and emerge with a half-eaten bag of hamburgers. The gentleman walked down the street, sat on a stoop and proceeded to eat the contents. Cookie could not get the image of the gentleman out of her mind and was speaking of the event to her aunt, Sr. Clara, and remarked, "Someone needs to do something." Her aunt responded to her saying, "You are someone, Cookie."
In 1985, with the help of her father, Ben, friends and other family members, Cookie found and rehabbed a basement on Logan Street and Our Daily Bread was born. In 2001 Our Daily Bread moved to the current location, 1730 Race Street, across from Findlay Market. The building was once an IGA and an A&P.
Very friendly and easy to work with! Responded to all my questions very quickly.
My son (who is 10 years old) wanted to give back to people that needed a little help, so he organized a neighborhood food drive for Our Daily Bread. After collecting items and delivering them, Our Daily Bread praised our son's hard work on Facebook and he was
so proud! We will definitely work with this organization again.
