Cleveland Foodbank

Founded in 1979, the Cleveland Foodbank works to alleviate hunger by providing food and support to agencies that feed the hungry. The Foodbank serves as a clearinghouse for surplus food in the greater Cleveland area. We solicit donations from local and national food suppliers and manufacturers, and then distribute that food to hunger programs. The Foodbank works closely with other Northeast Ohio hunger relief organizations, providing food and nonfood products to hunger centers administered by the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland, the Catholic Hunger and Shelter Network, and the Salvation Army, among others. In 2004, the Foodbank distributed over 17 million pounds of food to more than 400 hunger programs.
