Harvest for Hunger/Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with Harvest for Hunger! See the list below for 10 ways you can join in the fight against hunger: 

1. Donate Online 

Make a Donation! For every $1 donated, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank can provide four nutritious meals!

2. Host a food and/or funds drive. 

You can hold one at your workplace, school, place of worship, or in your neighborhood. 

3. Organize a virtual drive. 

If you and your co-workers (or family and friends) are not close enough to take part in a food and fund drive, the Harvest for Hunger team can set-up an online drive for you to collect funds through. Contact Samantha Martin at to get started.

Many companies throughout Northeast Ohio match their employees’ charitable contributions. You may be able to at least double your Harvest for Hunger donation!
