TQL Foundation gift concludes IPM Food Pantry’s $5 million campaign


CINCINNATI (March 14, 2024) – Fifteen months after launching a $5 million comprehensive campaign to build a permanent home, IPM Food Pantry has received a major gift from the TQL Foundation to complete its Reaching Further and Feeding More fundraising drive.


TQL’s gift comes three months after the grand opening of IPM’s new Food Pantry and Distribution Center at 4623 Aicholtz Road near Eastgate and I-275. The donation supports IPM’s mission to Expand, Mobilize and Equip neighbors in need.


“Our vision for big change was made possible because of the generous community support from donors like the TQL Foundation. Our team is ready to reach further and feed more, and thanks to our donors, we can,” said IPM President and CEO Alida Hart. 


Since moving into its new location in October, IPM has touched over 120 families a day, a 69% increase over last year.


“We have witnessed first-hand the incredible work IPM is doing in southwest Ohio to expand access to food,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne. “We’re proud to support all the valuable work they are doing for our community.”


IPM’s campaign opened with significant momentum, thanks to a significant gift from an anonymous donor.


“This gift was the catalyst for the outpouring of generosity from many friends and donors throughout our community,” said Nirvani Head, IPM cabinet co-chair.


Other lead gifts also included the Carol Ann & Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation and the Mills Family Fund. Additionally, IPM’s four founding churches — Armstrong Chapel, Indian Hill Church, St. Thomas Episcopal Church and St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church — contributed generously.

IPM Food Pantry, founded 60 years ago to create a thriving, food-secure community, is building upon its legacy to Reach Further and Feed More neighbors in need. In 2023, we distributed 1.3 million pounds of food via Drive-Through, Mobile and Pop-Up Pantries, Food Resource Hub agencies and schools throughout IPM’s southwestern Ohio service area.
