Menu of Hope 2024

Thank you for attending!


Thursday, March 7, 2024

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Hyatt Regency Ballroom Columbus

29th Annual Menu of Hope Luncheon

Join us at the annual fundraiser for Children’s Hunger Alliance, where we learn about how food-insecure children throughout Ohio are receiving healthy meals they need to thrive.

Over 400,000 children across Ohio live in food-insecure households.  CHA’s mission is to provide healthy meals to food-insecure children, advocate for the welfare of Ohio’s youngest citizens and teach nutrition education. Having consistent access to food gives children the best opportunity to do well in school, become productive adults and break the cycle of poverty.

Ohio’s children struggling with food insecurity rely on the generosity of community members to help us provide them with the meals they need. We hope that you can join us on March 7th and help in the fight against childhood hunger.
