Harvest for Hunger is an annual community-wide campaign that helps raise food and funds to help stock food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters throughout our region which includes Crawford, Erie, Huron and Lorain counties. We join together with 3 other food banks to run this campaign throughout 21 counties. So throughout February and March, all of north central and northeastern Ohio are raising awareness, funds and food to help those families struggling with hunger.
Help us reach our 2015 Goal to provide 1.1 million meals!
Many Ways to Help
This year, the campaign will run from February 14, 2015 through April 4, 2015. For every $1 donated, Second Harvest can provide 5 meals.
JOIN US for our annual Mardi Gras KICK OFF event on Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 11AM in the Second Harvest warehouse. We'll gather together to have some fun, feast on "paszki" and hear some encouraging words from local dignitaries and meet others who are putting on work site campaigns.
Workplace or School: Become A Harvest For Hunger Partner! Encourage your company to join the hundreds of others and run an employee fund and or food drive. As a student or teacher at a local school, encourage your school to get involved. Sponsor a Dress-Down Day, have a bake sale or have a FOOD FIGHT competition.
