NNEMAP

November 8th, 2010    •  by Bethia    •   No Comments »

I have been familiar with the work of the Mid-Ohio Food Bank for sometime, but it was only recently that I discovered that we have a food pantry in our neighborhood. NNEMAP is short for Near Northside Emergency Material Assistance Program. It was founded in 1969 in the days before the neighborhood was known as the Short North. NNEMAP has become one of the largest food pantries in Franklin County and this year expects to distribute food to more than 20,000 people each year. This is approximately 180,000 meals. At this time of year when we are starting to think […]

You can learn more about the owners Ryan Lang and Brady Konya and hear about how and why they started the business in the in-depth interview they did with Walker […]

Short North Standbys

August 1st, 2009    •  by Bethia    •   5 Comments »

The Short North has great options for eating and drinking at all times of the day and night. Here are some highlights and some of my personal favorites: Rigsby’s Kitchen is somewhere to go for lunch when you want to be able to hear your lunch companion and have excellent food and service. It would be a perfect venue for a lunch meeting and seating is always immediate.
