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.

Did you know that 1 in 6 northeast Ohioans struggle with hunger? Many people in northeast Ohio are forced to make tough choices. Unexpected expenses, prescription costs and rising heat costs are all things that can prevent people from being able to put food on the table and forcing them to make tough decisions, which often results in hunger. But you can help. Every dollar you donate to harvest for hunger will make possible four nutritious meals.

Donate today at harvestforhunger.org. Help feed your neighbors.

Keep in mind you can always find more information at  www.HarvestForHunger.org!
