Place Matters is a resident-led partnership between local funders and neighborhood nonprofits working collectively for the transformation of communities in Greater Cincinnati. The goal is to improve the quality of life in the community in a holistic and comprehensive way through lead agencies that provide a variety of programs and services.
All around Greater Cincinnati, small businesses are changing their model to keep serving valued customers during this time of uncertainty. If you’re looking to have a great meal and support our community please consider purchasing a gift card or takeout from small businesses in your own neighborhood. We’ve included a listing of some restaurants providing carry out and delivery in our Place Matters neighborhoods. We know they would appreciate your patronage!
