Every Friday, local school buses buzz with excitement. Most kids talk about their plans for the weekend, while others may remain quiet. Instead of dreaming up their own two days’ worth of fun, there is a child wondering if there will be enough to eat at home during the weekend. No child should worry about when their next meal will be. That’s why Second Harvest needs your support.
Last year, we were able to provide 1,458 backpacks to children in need every week. Every Friday, bags of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food are assembled and distributed to schools across our community. Your gift today will help fill a backpack with enough nutritious food for a local child for the entire weekend. Your compassion today will provide so much more than just food ... you’ll also provide hope. Together, we can ensure children across North Central Ohio have the food they need — every day of the week! Give today!
Hunger isn’t always easy to see. And today, it’s affecting working families everywhere. As the cost of living continues to rise, more and more people need two jobs to afford basic necessities like child care, rent, and food. On the outside, it may look like everything is fine. But if you look closer you can see that your neighbors are struggling. That’s where Second Harvest Food Bank comes in. You can help change lives with your gift today. Every $10 you donate helps provide 50 meals for our neighbors in need right here in North Central Ohio.
Become a Hunger Hero to Break the Cycle of Hunger. The need is great and we must continue to do everything we can to help those who struggle with hunger. 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 struggles with hunger. That is about 17,000 kids. We believe we have a great opportunity to raise awareness and funds to make a difference. But we need your help. We are asking our friends and supporters to be HUNGER HEROES!

CapWell Financial Advisors of Northwestern Mutual has accepted the challenge to become a Second Harvest “Hunger Hero” and help raise food and funds to improve the lives of children & families in their community. With their office based out of Cleveland, but majority of their team consisting of employees who reside in and around Lorain County, the members of CapWell Financial Advisors felt a real calling to give back to the communities they call home.
