|Hunger Action Month, held each September across the country, is an effort dedicated to raising awareness about how hunger affects our communities. The campaign is organized by Feeding America, a nationwide network of member food banks committed to hunger relief.
It's an opportunity for you to get involved in the fight against hunger. Whether it's by organizing a food drive, making a gift to the Food Bank or simply wearing orange in support of Go Orange day on Sept. 5, each step you take increases awareness of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank's efforts to ensure everyone in our communities has the nutritious food they need every day.
Go Orange Day
Come back in 2014 to see what date is selected for Go Orange Day!
Host a Virtual Drive
It's easy to host a virtual drive, through which the Greater Cleveland Food Bank will set up a page for you to raise money for the Food Bank. With each dollar raised, the Food Bank is able to provide four nutritious meals. The virtual drive is ideal for a workplace, club or church drive. Contact Caroline Weir at email@example.com to get started.
