Members of the NEST Community Learning Center Board of Directors and staff met Sunday afternoon to plan to feed “at risk” children from the Loveland City School District during closure in response to COVID-19. They and L.I.F.E. Food Pantry have stepped up their usual mission to care for those most in need in the Loveland community. With a clear and focused goal to feed the children first, both are mobilizing their volunteer teams to distribute food in a safe and healthy manner.  More details will folllow in a full story here on Loveland Beacon. 

While NEST and L.I.F.E. worked to develop detailed plans to feed those in need, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine was announcing the orders for restaurants and bars to close effective at 9:00 P.M. Sunday, March 15, 2020.  In Loveland, The Works, Paxton’s & Ramsey’s along with Bishop’s Quarter, Tanos and others were making plans to serve carryout customers after closing indoor dining to the public.  Again, details will follow here on Loveland Beacon. 

For now, Scott Gordon summed it up best with a message to all employees and customers: ” We are all in this together,”Gordon said. “We’ll be open for carryout and curb service. Customers will be able to come in, order food and carry it out. They just can’t sit down and eat here.”
