Feast of Love Ministries

Holiday Dinners provide a free hot meal and love on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone is welcome to come and share a table and fellowship. The meals are served from 12:00 – 2:00 at College Hill Presbyterian Church; 5742 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio 45224. The generosity of groups and individuals make it possible to feed our community and surrounding communities.

Tools for Schools collects and sends supplies to local schools where students have family incomes below the poverty level. Items are distributed by teachers and are available, free of charge, to children who would not have the necessary tools to learn without such a ministry.

Camp S'More is an overnight camp experience giving urban children living in poverty the opportunity for fun and enjoyment of nature. The children fish, go on a nature hike, play games, eat lots of good food, sing silly songs around the campfire and best of all make and eat s'mores!

Find a Need and Fill It is the largest ministry of Feast of Love, operating 52 weeks a year. Many low-income families have little to no furniture, with children often sleeping on the floor. We work with area churches and agencies to provide necessary furniture and beds to people in need.

Sleeping Sound is a program designed to provide a new twin size bed for children living in poverty. There are far too many children, in the Cincinnati area, sleeping on the floor or other unsafe conditions. Through this program, Feast of Love has partnered with The Cincinnati Police Department and Children’s Hospital to deliver these beds to children in need.

Coming Soon … Veterans Sleeping Sound. This program will provide a brand -new queen size bed for Veterans that are being rehoused. Currently, through our “Find and Need and Fill It”, we provide gently used beds for anyone in need. It breaks my heart that these men and women, who have been through hell while serving our country, are receiving used mattresses. Our desire in launching this program is for the new mattresses to be purchased through donations from fellow Veterans. I would like to tell each Veteran we help, that the mattress they are receiving came from fellow Veterans who donated, just because they cared. If you are a Veteran and have the desire to donate to this program, or are interested in helping get the word out to other Veterans, please contact Beverly Graves at
