Farm Bureau members from Northeast Ohio toured the Cleveland Foodbank and learned the challenges of collection and distribution of food to the 483 member programs they support, including hot meal sites, food pantries, shelters and other community programs that serve six area counties. In 2009 the Cleveland Foodbank distributed a record-breaking 27.3 million pounds of food. This was enough food for the member agencies to serve more than 21 million nutritious meals to hungry individuals. As a result of Ohio Farm BUreau’s “Farmers Feed Our Needs” initiative, the Cuyahoga COunty Farm Bureau collected and contributed over $3,500 to the Cleveland Foodbank in the past two years.
Today, it doesn't matter if you grow food or purchase it, Ohio Farm Bureau invites you to work with your neighbors to enhance the quality of life in your community and the unique ways agriculture touches our lives.Become a Member
