TCH awarded $25K from Charles H. Dater Foundation for new Nutrition and Culinary Services Program

The Children’s Home of Cincinnati has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Charles H. Dater Foundation for our new Nutrition and Culinary Services Program.

The Children’s Home of Cincinnati is constantly re-imagining the way it meets the nutritional, educational, and treatment needs of vulnerable children and families we serve. Starting in August 2018, we will be adding another vital program to the array of services we provide –Child Nutrition and Culinary Services. The vision of this new program is to provide healthy and fresh nutritious meals to students on our campuses and foster nutrition and health education.

The goals of this integrated health program will be to provide nutritious meals to students and their families, teach them how to eat healthy on a budget, and give opportunities for older youth and young adults to gain job skills in the food service industry. The incorporation of nutrition therapy and education will also provide medical and therapeutic health benefits.

“With a commitment to serve the “whole child”, The Children’s Home realizes how important proper nutrition is to our children, especially those living in poverty. Their exposure to healthy meals is minimal and cheap junk foods are the meal of choice,” said John Banchy, President and CEO. “The Child Nutrition and Culinary Services program will merge several services to promote proper nutrition which in turn will foster mental and physical health and a positive self-image. The Nutrition program will impact an estimated 1,000 children annually that are enrolled in our programs.”

This new program will be a game changer in battling several issues presented by children in various programs offered on The Children’s home campuses. Research indicates that even small improvements in the nutritional environment equate to large gains in mental health and overall well-being. Simply put, what these kids eat impacts the structure and function of the brain, and overall mood. The Children’s Home is well-positioned to help these kids physically and mentally feel better, behave and thrive positively, and grow up to be capable and contributing adults in their communities.
