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.
