The mission of the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland is to reduce hunger and enhance nutrition in our community by providing food and other health related vital services to individuals and families by actively and effectively participating in a coordinated response to people in need. Everyone has a place at our table.

We are Cuyahoga County's largest network of food pantries and hot meal sites. We support 82 "hunger centers" that feed 345,000 people every year and serving 4.5 million meals. In 2016, 1900 volunteers came through our doors to help their neighbors in need including 31% who were children and 20% who were seniors. Everyone has a place at our table.

We also served nearly 1,000 people through our Stay Well program - an effort to connect our clients to health and food assistance benefits, provide educational screening, and get people connected to a medical home.
