Fighting Hunger in Northern Kentucky



In the heart of Kentucky, too many of our neighbors struggle with the uncertainty and hardship of not having enough food. At Henry Hosea House, we see daily the faces of those affected—families, elderly individuals, and children whose situations have left them in need. Our mission goes beyond providing meals; we strive to nourish bodies and uplift spirits, offering a beacon of hope in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.


Understanding the Challenge of Food Insecurity

Food insecurity is more than just hunger. It’s about not knowing where your next meal is coming from. In our community, this issue touches people from all walks of life and its impacts are deep, affecting not only health but also the ability to engage fully in work, school, and social interactions. Here in Kentucky, our state ranks alarmingly high for food insecurity among adults aged 50-59, showcasing a need that cannot be ignored.

At Henry Hosea House, we meet this need head-on every day, providing warm, nutritious meals to anyone who walks through our doors. But the true heart of our mission lies in the sense of community we build—the smiles, the conversations, and the shared experiences that weave a fabric of support and care.


Our Approach to Nourishing and Supporting Our Community

Each day at Henry Hosea House is filled with stories of resilience and hope. By serving meals, we do so much more than feed the hungry; we create a place where people can find comfort and companionship. We serve everyone with dignity and respect, offering a haven from the hardships they face outside our walls.

Beyond our daily meals, we are committed to fighting food waste, a crucial step towards sustainability. Last year alone, we rescued over 56,000 pounds of food. By partnering with local businesses, we redirect food that would otherwise go to waste to fill plates and nourish our community. This effort not only helps those in need but also protects our environment by reducing methane emissions from landfills.
