Harvest for Hunger

Harvest for HungerHarvest for Hunger is the annual community-wide campaign that raises food and funds to stock food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters throughout our region. We partner with three other regional food banks to run this campaign through 21 counties, bringing together all of north central and northeast Ohio to raise awareness, funds and food to help families struggling with hunger. Harvest for Hunger is one of the largest campaigns of its kind in the nation, raising more than $2,500,000 and 400,000 pounds of food last year.

This year, Harvest for Hunger will run during March, April and May 2020.

Help Us Reach Our 2020 Goal to Provide Over 1.25 Million Meals!
