- WHY COMMUNITY MATTERS
- GET INVOLVED
Join team Feelin’ the Burns this Memorial Day as we participate in the Freestore Foodbank Hunger Walk and 5K Run to benefit the Community Market pantry at Community Matters.
The Community Market is the only place in Lower Price Hill where residents can attain healthy food for their families. In Lower Price Hill, we do not have a grocery store in our neighborhood or restaurants that serve nutritious meals. As a result, LPH is defined as a “food desert.” The Community Market is a choice pantry that enables our neighbors to access free food to create healthy meals for their families. The Market also offers critical hygiene products and household items, which are not otherwise covered by food assistance benefits.
In 2017, Community Matters was able to provide emergency food assistance to more than 350 families in Lower Price Hill through the Community Market.
