The Cleveland Foodbank works with partners around the region to ensure that Cleveland area men, women and children do not go hungry.
Food comes from many different resources, both local and national. The Foodbank solicits, inspects, sorts and repacks food for distribution to our member agencies throughout Northeastern Ohio. We distributed 35.4 million pounds of food last fiscal year. That's over 29 million meals.
Agency Academy brings together community partners to provide educational and health-related programming to our member agencies to help increase the capacity of our agency representatives to serve their clients. The curriculum includes training in health and nutrition, efficient program management, fundraising, safe food handling, and identifying and utilizing community resources. Learn more about upcoming Agency Academy Workshops.
The Cleveland Foodbank uses purchased and donated food to provide complete meals to Member Agencies that run community hot meals, children & senior programs. Learn more
A Mobile Pantry is a Foodbank truck full of food that is brought to a central location where clients can pick up a three-day supply of food. In 2009, the Cleveland Foodbank piloted its first Mobile Pantry
delivering food to people living in underserved areas.
Agencies and Foodbank staff work together to plant and maintain the gardens
. Each week Foodbank staff have been watering the gardens daily and member agencies come once a week to water, weed and eventually pick the produce for use at their feeding programs.
