Giveaway: Win 2 tickets to Market at the Foodbank

Market at the Foodbank

Win tickets to Harvest for Hunger’s annual fundraiser Market at the Foodbank, April 14

Over the last year, I’ve really enjoyed getting involved with the Cleveland Foodbank’s new volunteer group, YP Pantry.

I had volunteered at the Foodbank a few times previously with the Ohio Blogging Association. However, YP Pantry’s monthly volunteer and social events have been about much more than getting to know other Cleveland young professionals (although that has been fun).

It’s been an awakening experience thanks to the staff at the Foodbank and member agencies like Trinity Lutheran Church – helping me better understand the effects of hunger on Northeast Ohio.

Witnessing how wide-reaching hunger is and how it can affect all of us has given me a much stronger appreciation for programs like Harvest for Hunger, whose goal in 2013 is to raise over 16 million meals.

Each year, Harvest for Hunger raises food and funds for 21 Ohio counties, one of the largest drives in the country.

Whether it’s donating money ($1 provides 4 meals), organizing a food drive or attending community events like YP Pantry’s Harvest for Hunger Happy Hour on March 21, the campaign is a success when everyone in Northeast Ohio lends a hand.

One way to have a huge impact on Harvest for Hunger is to attend their Market at the Foodbank fundraiser.

From 6-8:30pm on April 14, Cleveland chefs and celebrity servers like Press Wine Bar, SoWFood, Strip Steakhouse, AMP 150 and Washington Place Bistro will take over the Cleveland Foodbank for an evening of savory tastings, drinks, and live entertainment.

This is my first time attending Market at the Foodbank, as my friend Kate guestblogged for me last year (you can read her recap here).

Previously, this benefit has raised $188,000, which translates to 750,000+ meals in one night.

General Admission tickets are $85 in March ($100 in April and at the door). VIP tickets cost $175 which includes an exclusive reception from 5-6pm. Buy tickets online or call 216-738-2046.

I’m also happy to announce I’m giving away a pair of tickets on Clue Into Cleveland!

    I support Harvest for Hunger through my office – we have a potluck lunch one day and everyone has to bring in the money they would’ve spent on lunch and the money goes to the Foodbank!

    Ohhh I would love to win this!! I volunteered at the Food Bank the other week, so I was excited when I heard about the YP group because I think that will be an even better way to get involved. Sent my membership application in just the other night :).

    I support Harvest for Hunger by regularly donating via Giant Eagle, or sending a check in. :) It’s one of the easiest organizations to donate too through their use of the $ cards at The Eagle.

  5. Kristen LePrevost

    I volunteered many years ago at the foodbank and donate food items as well as at the checkout line at Giane Eagle. Great cause!

  6. Lee Movic

    I support Harvest for Hunger at the register at Giant Eagle. If I can spend $1 on a lottery ticket, I can spend at least that helping hungry families!

    I have organized food drives in the past, but need to make more of an effort to remember to donate more than just during events. I’ll remember to add it on to my groceries this week. :)
