Join the 2014 Hunger-Free Families holiday campaign

Eat, drink and feed many this holiday season by joining the Hunger-Free Families campaign. Each year, we invite the community to help provide food to families struggling with hunger. In Northeast Ohio, nearly 1 in 4 children don’t always know where their next meal will come from. The Foodbank’s annual Hunger-Free Families campaign aims to take action for these children and their families struggling with hunger.


Be a Hunger Hero today

Be a Hunger Hero by hosting a food & funds drive and participating in the Hunger-Free Families campaign this holiday season. In-house drives are a wonderful way to promote community involvement and team building while benefiting those in need. Click on the button below to register your food & funds drive. Materials will begin mailing November 1, 2014.



Donate to Hunger-Free Families

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 263,200 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.
