Who is Mary Lee Maier?

  • Mary Lee Maier is the mother of Mindy Cunningham of Cunningham Restaurant Group (CRG). Due to CRG’s extensive support of the pantry, Mike Cunningham was asked to name the pantry. He did so in honor of his mother-in-law who was a dedicated educator in Cincinnati for more than 20 years as a Kindergarten teacher. Mary Lee was an active and involved community member and her positive influence in the lives of children included PTA, Girl Scouts, the Cincinnati Jayceettes, and as a church elder. She also volunteered as an instructor at her beloved swim club and inner-city public schools. Her passion an energy in providing kids with opportunity embodies the spirit of the Mary Lee Maier Community Pantry.
