In 2012, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank launched a benefits outreach initiative unique among food banks across the nation.

Our Help Center - dedicated to connecting food insecure individuals with the assistance they need – allows callers and walk-in clients the opportunity to complete an application for several government assistance programs. Our Client Help Specialists can assist with over-the-phone applications for SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), Medicaid, and other public benefits. Calls are free and confidential.
In the Food Bank service area, one in six people are food insecure. For children, those numbers are more dismal. One in four children in our service area is at risk of hunger.
We understand that people need a helping hand during hard times. Many turn to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for help! We serve clients from Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, Richland and Ashland Counties and we can connect those in need to our feeding partner agencies, that offer hot meals, pantries, mobile pantries, senior and kids programs that are nearby. In addition, we can help you submit a SNAP application by phone!
