Provide Access to Healthy Food

CHA is a statewide organization headquartered in Columbus, with a regional presence in Cincinnati, Cleveland, southeast Ohio and Toledo. The agency works toward its mission by sponsoring federal meal programs in early childcare and afterschool settings, increasing access to and participation in the federal School Breakfast Program and Summer Nutrition Program, and educating children to make healthy food choices and become more engaged in physical activity.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
At-risk youth

In addition to providing food for children at-risk for food insecurity, we advocate for increased participation in a variety of USDA meal programs, including the National School Breakfast and the Summer Food Service programs. Through outreach in all of Ohio’s 88 counties, we facilitate access to nutritious food for tens of thousands of children in schools, community organizations, faith-based organizations, and other youth-serving groups each year. We also offer extensive technical assistance to schools and community organizations currently operating federal food programs.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth

Our nutrition education and physical activity team utilizes evidence-based programming to teach children how to make healthy life-long choices. Our dedicated and passionate staff members know the importance of sustained interaction with children and their communities to bringing about long-term change. The Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) Kids Club is offered to program partners serving school-age children and the EatPlayGrow curriculum is offered to our childcare center partners serving preschool-age children.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
