"ODB’s staff and volunteers are intensely committed to helping address hunger and poverty in Cincinnati. But it isn’t just the institution that I value – it is the connection with our guests. They know they can come to ODB for a warm meal, and a warmer welcome. It’s that simple sense of humanity, and humility, that I experience every time I walk through the doors. I can think of no better place to 'pay it forward.' "
