Drop-In Center Lunch - Third Wednesday of the Month

For over 12 years, Ankur volunteers have quietly and consistently served at The Drop-In Center monthly lunches, traditional Thanksgiving meal, winter wear at Christmas as well as donations to those who are homeless in Cincinnati serving society and those in need.

Ankur volunteers led by Bharti Noticewala, donate, prepare and serve lunch to over 150 homeless people every month at The Drop-In Center which is Greater Cincinnati's largest homeless shelter, located in Over-the-Rhine. Thanks to these generous members of Ankur community who discreetly donate funds, food items and time making these monthly lunches possible. A true spirit of charity!

To help serve lunch or donate food items or money, please contact Julie Desai 560-2232 or Bharti Noticewala 563-2007.
