Harvest for Hunger is an annual awareness campaign aimed at fighting hunger in 21 of Ohio’s counties. It is a joint effort of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, Greater Cleveland Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley and Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio.
Thanks to the help of local businesses, supermarkets, schools and individuals, we raised enough food and money for more than 17 million meals through Harvest for Hunger 2014!

Your support of hunger relief efforts in our area is more important than ever. Why?
1 in 6 Ohioans struggles to put food on the table. For children, that number is more dismal, as 1 in 4 children are at risk of going hungry.
In late 2013, $193 million in benefits were cut in Ohio, leaving a significant gap in the incomes of many Ohio families. This means a staggering 1.8 million people in Ohio will see a decrease or loss of benefits this year.
All too often, those served by the Harvest for Hunger campaign must choose between paying for food and paying for utilities such as heat, or getting the medicines they need to stay healthy.
Donate now to the 2015 campaign now and become a Harvest for Hunger champion. Thank you!
