The Greater Cleveland Food Bank’s drive thru distribution will still be Thursday, June 4 from 2 – 5 p.m., rain or shine, at the City of Cleveland Municipal lot.

The Food Bank is planning to distribute a combination of fresh produce and shelf-stable product. The Cleveland Police and Ohio National Guard are helping with traffic control as well as Food Bank volunteers helping with client check-in.

We continue to implement safety measures for our staff, volunteers and clients to ensure that this event runs smoothly and achieves its purpose – safely get food to families, seniors and individuals who need it. The same guidelines are in place for anyone planning to attend:

  • We encourage everyone to pre-register at You will receive a number and you will need to bring that number with you to display in your car window as part of the check-in process. This will help minimize personal contact and estimate the number of people expected to attend. Everyone is strongly encouraged to pre-register. If you need additional help, please call the Food Bank Help Center at 216-738-2067. 
  • No walk up clients.
  • This will be a drive-thru process only and you will not need to leave your vehicle for any reason. You MUST be in a vehicle to receive food.
  • Due to safety concerns, we are REQUIRING that your trunk is empty.  Food will only be placed in your trunk.
  • Traffic coming from the east (on Rt#2 or I 90 westbound) follow Rt#2 use the S. Marginal Exit #106 to get to the Muni Lot
  • Traffic from the south I-71 and I-90 east travel to East 55th exit 175, where they will make a right and another immediate right onto the S. Marginal Rd.
  • In general all other traffic should start at E.55 and S. Marginal and travel west on the S. Marginal to the Muni Lot
