The Harvest for Hunger campaign, of which Mayor Frank G. Jackson is an honorary co-chair, is led by Greater Cleveland Food Bank. The drive came to a close last week and organizers announced they had reached their goal of raising enough for than 21 million meals. That is a record number of meals raised!

In total, the City of Cleveland – from City Hall to the Department of Utilities to the Mayor’s Office – raised $117,000. That makes the City of Cleveland an emerald level sponsor, raising more than $100 per employee. In addition, the City collected 1,400 pounds of food for the Food Bank.

The Harvest for Hunger committee at the City of Cleveland has been holding food and funds drives throughout the campaign to reach its goal. Congrats to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and the City’s Harvest for Hunger committee for making a difference in the community by providing meals for those struggling with hunger!
