GCFB Announces Another Drive-Thru Distribution Event

Cleveland - After several successful trips to the Muni Lot downtown, The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is headed there again for another Drive-Thru Distribution.

The event will be Thursday, April 30th from 2 – 5 p.m., rain or shine. The Food Bank is planning to distribute a combination of fresh produce and shelf-stable product. 

The Cleveland Police, Ohio Military Reserve and Ohio National Guard are helping with traffic control as well as the State Highway Patrol with client check-in.

Safety measures will continue for staff, volunteers and clients to ensure that this event runs smoothly and achieves its purpose – safely get food to families, seniors and individuals who need it. 

Cleveland City Councilman Basheer Jones is assisting with the weekly drive-thru food distribution to help raise critical dollars for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

The Food Bank has released the following guidelines for anyone planning to attend:

• Pre-register at www.WeFeedCLE.org. You will receive a number and you will need to bring that number with you to display in your car window as part of the check-in process. This will help minimize personal contact and estimate the number of people expected to attend. Everyone is strongly encouraged to pre-register. If you need additional help, please call the Food Bank Help Center at 216-738-2067.

• No walk up clients.

• This will be a drive-thru process only and you will not need to leave your vehicle for any reason. You MUST be in a vehicle to receive food.

• Due to safety concerns, we are REQUIRING that your trunk is empty. Food will only be placed in your trunk.

• Traffic coming from the east (on Rt#2 or I 90 westbound) follow Rt#2 use the S. Marginal Exit #106 to get to the Muni Lot

• Traffic from the south I-71 and I-90 east travel to East 55th exit 175, where they will make a right and another immediate right onto the S. Marginal Rd.

• In general all other traffic should start at E.55 and S. Marginal and travel west on the S. Marginal to the Muni Lot

To date, more than 14,000 families have been served at these weekly drive-thru distributions.
