Greetings,


Food writer, Keith Pandolfi, reached out to UACC wanting to learn more about Appalachian food and culture right here in Cincinnati. Having been familiar with the poetry from Appalachian writers and artists, he wasn't as familiar with how food connects Appalachian migrants and urban Appalachians to their roots. This must-read blog post highlights ways in which we can educate those less familiar with urban Appalachian culture through one universal bond - food! Check it out below!

Plus, stay up-to-date with the sudden Price Hill Project halt in a recent news article and learn how you can help, read a recap of last week's Express: Wide Open Mic night hosted by UACC and Originary Arts Initiative, and check out details about an upcoming Heath Fair by Santa Maria in Price Hill on Sunday, October 11.

Sincerely,
UACC

'Does not smell right.' This lower Price Hill development was supposed to help low-income people thrive. What happened? - by The Cincinnati Enquirer

Price Hill has been in the ongoing process of setting up an affordable housing project titled "LPH Thrives - Lower Price Hill Thrives." This project would have created 47 affordable apartments in renovated historic buildings. Last week, news broke that the city made a last-minute refusal of $1 million in taxpayer support for the project and potentially killing the project.

Please write to David Mann, Chair of Budget and Finance, or others on the City Council list that you know.  The link to the council list is HERE.
