We need you to be the super heroes we know you can be to help us stop childhood hunger in its tracks! This year we are rallying around the cause of child hunger and rather than just an event, it is a season. In our area one in five children struggle with hunger. That is about 17,000 kids. We believe we have a great opportunity to raise awareness and funds to really make a difference. But we need your help.We invite you to join with us in breaking the cycle of hunger in North Central Ohio, focusing on the specific issue of child hunger. We are asking our friends and supporters to be HUNGER HEROES! End childhood hunger. Donate TODAY!
One out of five children in our region are food insecure meaning they don’t know where there next meal is coming. Bringing nutritious food to children is always a priority but the summer is a critical time when school is out and the breakfast and lunch they receive at school is out too.
We will soon be filling out coolers and trucks with local fresh produce for distribution. Second Harvest is embarking on the 14th year of this program. We are fortunate to be partnered with local growers and farmers who can provide the fresh produce. These just-picked items come to us and are sent out to the scheduled Mobile Produce Pantries in a very timely manner.
