Advocate To Alleviate Hunger
Help Hungry People in Northeast Ohio and Across the Nation by Joining The Greater Cleveland Food Bank Advocacy Network!
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank's mission is to ensure that everyone in our
communities has the nutritious food they need every day. As the largest source
of food for hunger centers in northeast Ohio, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank is
uniquely positioned to engage public officials and citizens alike in fighting
hunger. The Food Bank Advocacy Network is central to helping us fulfill our
mission. By focusing on public policy issues that relate specifically to hunger
relief, we can work together to make a significant impact in the lives of northeast
Ohioans and hungry people across the nation.
Would you be willing to write a letter, send an email, make a phone call or
attend an event to help impact legislation that alleviates hunger? We only
contact you when we need to – less often than once a month! Tell us you're
ready to join the Greater Cleveland Food Bank Advocacy Network!
As a fellow advocate, we can inform you about upcoming Greater Cleveland Food Bank events where you can get involved.
Another easy way to fight hunger is by joining forces with our national organization, Feeding America. They have provided a simple way to obtain updates on critical national and statewide legislation, as well as a means to directly communicate with your elected officials on important food and nutrition issues. Register today - and invite a friend to do so too - and see how easy it can be to take meaningful action in fighting hunger!

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, is the foundation of the nutrition safety net, delivering monthly benefits to participants through electronic benefit cards that can be used to purchase groceries at stores nationwide. SNAP is funded through the Farm Bill which will expire at the end of September, so now is the time to ask our legislators to protect these programs. Learn more.
