2014 Harvest for Hunger

Harvest for Hunger

Joining the fight against hunger in a true “All For One. One For All” effort, the Cleveland Cavaliers are proud to team up with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for the 2014 Cavaliers Harvest for Hunger Food Drive presented by Walgreens. With an overall campaign goal to provide 17 million meals to families in need throughout Northeast Ohio, the Wine & Gold are asking fans to get involved by donating items at an upcoming game at Quicken Loans Arena.

Fans attending Cavs games are encouraged to bring canned foods and non-perishable items to put into collection bins that will be located at all arena entrances on Tuesday, March 18th (vs. Miami at 7:00 p.m.), Thursday, March 20th (vs. Oklahoma City at 7:00 p.m.) and Saturday, March 22nd (vs. Houston at 7:30 p.m.). Fans can also make monetary donations at any one of Walgreen’s 93 locations throughout Northeast Ohio.

While all donations, canned food and non-perishables will gladly be accepted, Harvest for Hunger is in particular need of the “Super Six”:

• Peanut Butter
• Tuna Fish
• Canned Vegetables
• Canned Soup
• Cereal
• Beef Stew

The entire Cavaliers organization will also conduct an internal Harvest for Hunger food drive by asking team members to make food and fund donations. In addition, the Lake Erie Monsters are collecting items at all home games in the month of March.

Harvest for Hunger - one of the largest annual, community-wide food and funds drives in the nation – provides critical resources to local hunger relief organizations in 21 counties in Northeast and North Central Ohio. In 2013, a generous Northeast Ohio community contributed enough food and funds to provide more than 16.5 million meals. The campaign is coordinated locally by the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and is done in partnership with the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley, and Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio.
