We thank our partner agencies for their hard work, dedication, and compassion in providing food to neighbors experiencing food insecurity in our communities.

In the last year, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and its partners provided services to nearly 350,000 people! We are proud to work with our partner agencies and programs in the fight against hunger in Ashland, Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Richland counties.

The Food Bank provides food and non-food items to more than 1,000 programmatic partner agencies. These programs include pantries, on-site meal providers, shelters and other non-profit organizations including children’s after school and summer programs, senior programs, and rehabilitation programs.

All organizations interested in a partnership must fill out an application, complete a site visit, and attend an extensive orientation before ordering and distributing food from the Food Bank. Applications are subject to approval by Food Bank staff. All minimum application requirements must be met to be considered for partnership.

A benefit of working with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank allows hunger relief partners to stock their refrigerators, freezers, and shelves to stretch their dollars, ultimately providing more food for more people in need. The Food Bank distributes USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) and OFP (Ohio Food Program) products at no charge to our partner agencies and programs. In addition, fresh produce, dairy, and bread products are distributed at no charge. The Food Bank also purchases food and receives donated products that partner agencies can order off of our shopping list.

We sincerely thank our current partner agencies for their phenomenal effort in serving the ever-increasing number of people in need of food in our communities.
