Become a Hunger Hero to Break the Cycle of Hunger

The need is great and we must continue to do everything we can to help those who struggle with hunger.

This year we are rallying around the cause of child hunger and rather than just an event, it is a season. In our area, one in five children struggles with hunger. That is about 17,000 kids. We believe we have a great opportunity to raise awareness and funds to make a difference.

But we need your help.

Second Harvest Food Bank Hunger Heroes We invite you to join with us in breaking the cycle of hunger in North Central Ohio, focusing on the specific issue of child hunger. This fall we are asking our friends and supporters to be HUNGER HEROES!

Your generous support benefits your company and the people whom are served by Second Harvest:

  • Receive a listing as a HUNGER HERO during the community-wide Child Hunger Summit in February.
  • A measured market value in clicks and views depending on your investment.
  • The best benefit of all is that your dollars can help Second Harvest distribute meals to local people in need.

These events will help Grow Hope in our region by creating pathways to nutritious food for many children, seniors and those who rely on the over 160 programs including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs, senior box programs, backpack programs and Kids Cafes right here in our four-county area.

Thank you for your consideration. We are poised and ready to help so many and it will go farther with your help.
