Harvest for Hunger is an annual 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.
This year’s goal is to raise enough food and money for 17 million meals!

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 at 1 in 4 children are at risk of going hungry in Ohio.
In late 2013, $193 million in benefits were cut in Ohio. This has left a significant gap in the incomes of many Ohio families which will lead them to need even more assistance from local food banks. This means a staggering 1.8 million people in Ohio alone that will see decreased or a loss of benefits this year.
All too often, those served by the Harvest for Hunger campaign have to choose between paying for food and paying for utilities such as heat, or getting the medicines they need to stay healthy.
Donate now, and become a Harvest for Hunger champion. Thank you!
