Harvest for Hunger Charity Profile
Harvest for Hunger—one of the largest annual, community-wide food and funds drives in the nation—provides critical resources to local hunger relief organizations in twenty-one counties in Northeast and North Central Ohio. Thanks to a very generous community, last year’s campaign raised the dollars and food needed to provide over 10 million meals to individuals and families who were struggling to make ends meet.
Harvest for Hunger 2011 is the most important campaign to date, as the downturn in the economy, rising unemployment, and higher food and heating bills are forcing more people to turn to local hot meal programs, food pantries and shelters for assistance. We must provide more food this year, and we can with your help.
Harvest for Hunger Volunteer Information
Harvest for Hunger, one of the nation's largest food and funds drive campaigns, is a coordinated effort of four Foodbanks in Northeast Ohio that provides critical resources to local hunger relief organizations in 21 counties. Your support is needed as high unemployment has forced more people to turn to local hot meal programs, food pantries and shelters for assistance. Our goal for the 2011 Harvest for Hunger Campaign is to raise $750,000, the equivalent of 2.25 million meals.
We need your support to feed people in need right here in our community. Hunger affects children, seniors, the disabled and even working adults. In our community, as many as 180,000 people rely on the Foodbank for emergency food assistance each year. Many have to face tough decisions like whether to pay their heating bills or buy groceries. They turn to the Foodbank and its agencies in their time of need. $1 can provide three meals to the hungry in our community. Click the green button below to make your secure online donation.
