About Meals With Muffet

Remember when Muffet and the Notre Dame Women's Basketball team made their first ever Final Four appearance right here in Cincinnati, well now she's asking us to join her in fighting hunger.In her retirement, former Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw has spent her time boxing out hunger and leading neighborhood food drives in South Bend. Now, she’s inviting everyone to get off the sidelines and join Meals With Muffet.

Meals With Muffet is a nationwide food drive for clubs, groups, families, and individuals to get involved and help fight hunger in their communities. In the United States, more than 37 million people, and more than 11 million children, are food insecure. The nationwide campaign’s goal is to collect 275,000 pounds of food during September, which is National Hunger Action Month, as well as collect monetary donations.

The Notre Dame Club of Cincinnati is joining the Meals With Muffet campaign during the month of September.
