2019 Summer Meals Program

We're partnering with more than 100 local programs to provide free meals for students while school is not in session. Summer meals are free to students and will be offered in five counties in Northeast Ohio this summer.

Sign Up for Benefits or Find Help in Your Community

The Greater Cleveland Food Bank’s Benefits Outreach Department works with the community to help them find food, apply for SNAP and other public benefits, and find other help in their community. Our Help Center is open weekdays for walk-ins or calls from 8 am to 5 pm.  Visit us at our facility at 15500 S Waterloo Road or call 216.738.2067.

When school ends, hunger spikes. Please help support the Food Bank this summer by donating, hosting a drive, or volunteering!

Donate to the Food Bank

We're hard at work ensuring that everyone in our communities has the nutritious food they need every day. During the summer, we help provide meals to students who don't have access to the school lunches they rely on during the school year. Donate now to support these programs! For every $1 you give now, the Food Bank can provide up to four meals.

Host a Drive to Support the Food Bank

Volunteer in our Kitchen

During the summer, our kitchen increases their production by more than 2,000 meals per day as we work to provide meals to students through our Summer Meals Program. Volunteers are needed six days per week at our facility to help pack lunches, sort food, and help our operations run smoothly. Click here to sign up for a shift.
