Harvest for Hunger

Throughout Northeast Ohio, one in six people may not know where their next meal will come from. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank seeks to bridge the meal gap, connecting individuals with nutritious meals. Harvest for Hunger – one of the largest annual, community-wide food and funds drives in the nation – provides critical resources to local hunger relief organizations in 21 counties in Northeast and North Central Ohio.

Harvest for Hunger is made up of people from all across Northeast Ohio giving what they can. A little truly does go a long way at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Every dollar donated through the campaign provides four nutritious meals to area hunger centers and programs. At the annual fundraising campaign kick off, Clevelanders were asked to support this organization and the community with food and monetary donations.

Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish were joined by Councilman Joe Cimperman (Ward 3) and President and Chief Executive Officer for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank Kristin Warzocha, for brief remarks at the 24th Annual Harvest for Hunger Campaign Kick-off held at the Cleveland Food Bank on Waterloo Road in Cleveland. In 2014, employees of the City of Cleveland raised more than $110,000 and collected more than 5,000 pounds of food for the Harvest for Hunger.
