Eden is strong and healthy, thanks to you!

Eden

Eden is thrilled. She’s receiving food at her school, Citizens Academy, a partner agency of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. “This food is important because it’s helping me be strong and healthy!” she says, flexing her arms in a Mr. Universe pose.

Like many children here, Eden’s family is struggling. There are too many bills and not enough resources. When money gets tight at the end of the month, food — especially the nutritious kind — is often the first thing to be sacrificed.

That’s why the Greater Cleveland Food Bank places such a strong emphasis on delivering healthy food to children, including fresh fruits and vegetables. Eden shares things like apples, carrots, and blueberries with her younger brothers. “They need it to be strong, too,” she explains.

On behalf of Eden and the thousands of other children in need that you are helping feed, thank you very much!
