THE HUNGER NETWORK MISSION
THE STORY: Rebecca is one of the new faces of Hunger... people who have never asked for help before. This thirty-year-old mother with a young son struggled to acquire her associate's degree while working full time as a server. Her goal was to make a better life for her son. After graduation, Rebecca found a great job and she was on her way to making a better life for her son. Then the unthinkable happened, Rebecca lost her job. "Everyone here at the center has been so kind and helpful. I don't know what I would do during this rough time with out the Hunger Network's help," smiled Rebecca.
THE SOLUTION: The Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland is the largest direct emergency food provider in Cuyahoga County. With the help of 1000 volunteers working in over 100 Hunger Network food pantries and hot meal programs, nutritious food is put directly into the hands of 60,000 people every month... 25,000 of those are children. Every day we are face to face with our community's most vulnerable citizens, stopping hunger in its tracks! READ MORE >>
