Currently, we are operating in a drive-through format:

  1. Please follow the signs when you arrive at Avon Intermediate School East property, they will direct you west to the back of Avon Intermediate School West. This is where the line starts for the drive through.
  2. You will be greeted by a MLM member and this is where you will check in. Your family size will be written on a piece of paper and places on your front window. You will then be directed to drive up to the volunteers.
  3. The volunteers will place a box of packaged food according to family size in your trunk. Each family will receive milk, eggs, frozen foods, and refrigerated foods when available.

Meet Mary Lee Maier

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. Mary Lee was a dedicated kindergarten teacher in Cincinnati for more than 20 years, and an active and involved community member. She influenced children through her involvement in 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 and energy in providing kids with opportunity embodies the spirit of the Mary Lee Maier Community Pantry.
