“When you donate $ 1 to Harvest for Hunger, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank can help provide enough food for four nutritious meals.”
CLEVELAND – Editor’s Note: The video at the top of this story was released prior to the official launch of the Harvest for Hunger campaign.
More than 25 million Meals are on this year’s plans for food banks in northeast Ohio as they launch the 30th annual Harvest for Hunger fundraiser.
“When you donate $ 1 to Harvest for Hunger, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank can help provide enough food for four nutritious meals,” officials said. “The Food Bank serves more people than ever before. Many new families who have never used a grocery bank are turning to us for the first time – the grocery bank is serving twice as many new families as it did at the same time last year. “
This need has increased because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
