FUSIAN brings "Gourmet Day" to Cincy soup kitchen

FUSIAN brings sushi to Our Daily Bread in Over-The-Rhine.

Most days we’re thinking on our feet and today was no exception. Hyde Park team members Tyler, Eric, and Rebecca were busy in the AM preparing sushi for Clark Montessori (a Sushi in Schools partner) when they received a phone call stating school was cancelled due to an early morning snowstorm.

When the phone rang we had 40 rolls prepared, and while kids were out enjoying the snow, we were making phone calls to see who would accept a donation for lunch.

We live by the code “waste not, want not” and on this day we put it into practice. We loaded up the FUSIAN family roadster and headed down to OTR where we were greeted by Kathy Schickel. She put us to work serving nearly 300 guests sushi rolls that otherwise would have been uneaten. Kathy’s customers loved it so much that this particular Tuesday became known as “Gourmet Day!”

Our Daily Bread is located in Over-the-Rhine and serves five meals a week to those in need within the local community. It serves a place for guests to share meals, receive social services, and socialize in a safe communal environment. visit them @
