Greater Cleveland Food Bank

Week of Giving

Monday, April 1 - Sunday, April 7, 2019

The Harvest for Hunger Week of Giving is a joint effort among four food banks in Northeast Ohio. The week provides an opportunity for community members to get involved in local hunger-relief efforts, while providing fun and tangible ways to be part of the campaign.

There are lots of ways to get involved in the week:

APRIL 1 - Make a Donation Monday

Campaign supporters are encouraged to donate to the Harvest for Hunger Campaign to help kick off the Week of Giving. Whether you donate online, send in a check, or visit our collection with the RTA at Tower City before the Indians Home Opener, every dollar you give helps provide four nutritious meals.

Help make a difference for our neighbors in need facing difficult choices. Please don't wait - donate now.

APRIL 2 - Take a Tour Tuesday

Tune in LIVE on Facebook at 1 pm for a behind-the-scenes look at the Food Bank's 128,000 square foot facility. Learn more about how we operate and how food moves through our facility to people in need throughout Northeast Ohio.

APRIL 3 - Volunteer Wednesday

Volunteers are the backbone of the work we do at the Food Bank. Last year, more than 18,000 people gave more than 85,000 to the Food Bank. You can be a part of it! Volunteer shifts are available all day on Wednesday, April 3 from 8 am to 8 pm. Sign up for a shift at Can't make it that day? Don't worry - shifts are available six days per week.

APRIL 4 - Thankful Thursday

We'll be spending the day expressing our gratitude for everyone who supports the Food Bank and the Harvest for Hunger Campaign! You can join in and show your support of the Week of Giving by posting on social media why you support Harvest for Hunger using these signs:
