CLEVELAND - On Thursday, at Nela Park, Harvest for Hunger held a ceremony celebrating its 31st campaign. In 1992 The Greater Cleveland Food Bank started Harvest for Hunger in the hope of raising money to provide nutritious food for local hunger relief.
In 2021, the Food Bank served more than 25 million meals, a fourth of which came to the Food Bank for the first time, as many continue to feel the effects of the pandemic, as well as rising food and fuel costs.
This year with the proceeds from nearly 200 companies, non-profits and schools, and government officials, Harvest for Hunger provided 29,378,691 meals.
