Food bank officials say that they can provide four meals for every dollar that is donated.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Monsters along with Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse donated over 3,300 pounds of perishable food that was for scheduled arena events to the food bank with the building closed due to the coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the globe.

The Cavs also matched a financial donation made by head coach B.J. Bickerstaff to the foodbank and Children’s Hunger Alliance.
