Nick Lachey Kicks Off Charity Program


Singer To Tour Soup Kitchens, Food Banks Around Country

On Monday morning, Cincinnati native Nick Lachey was busy giving back to his community.

Lachey was at the Freestore Foodbank in Over-the-Rhine to help kick off the “Everybody Wins” tour. The tour will help out Feeding America, which bills itself as the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief charity.Lachey said, “One in eight of every Americans does not know where their next meal is going to come from. It’s just a staggering number of people that, especially in these tough economic times, are having trouble putting food on their table. So, it’s a really important cause. I’ve tried to get behind it and just raise awareness for it.”On Tuesday, Lachey will be leaving for an 11-day tour of soup kitchens and food banks across the country.
