What You'll Get

The Issue: Food Insecurity in Cleveland

The food banks participating in the Harvest for Hunger program report that there are 752,210 people living in their service areas who are food insecure—meaning that they do not know where their next meals will come from—based on data from Feeding America.

The Campaign: Distribute Nutritious Meals to People in Need

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then the Harvest for Hunger program can provide 2,000 nutritious meals to people in need. Each additional $10 donation will provide 40 more meals. Harvest for Hunger is an annual food drive, and strives to solicit and distribute food and monetary donations to benefit 21 counties. Four Clevland-area food banks participate in the Harvest for Hunger program—Cleveland Foodbank, Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio, Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, and Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley. The campaign raised enough food and money to provide more than 14 million meals in 2011, but due to increased need, its goal is to provide 16 million meals this year.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

About Cleveland Foodbank

The Cleveland Foodbank was formed in 1979 by a diverse group of individuals who were concerned about the complex issue of hunger, including food-industry professionals who were troubled by its waste and those who worked with nonprofit organizations that directly benefitted the hungry. Today, the organization distributes both nonperishable and fresh or frozen foods to a network of 618 member hunger programs across Northeast Ohio. Last year, the food bank distributed 34.5 million pounds of food—the equivalent of 27 million meals—to individuals and families in need.
