Cavs Supporting Greater Cleveland Food Bank’s Harvest for Hunger Campaign at This Week’s Games

Because one in six people in Northeast Ohio may not know where their next meal will come from, the Cleveland Cavaliers are once again joining the Greater Cleveland Food Bank in their Harvest for Hunger campaign, and are asking fans to do the same. The team will be collecting items at their two home games this week, Tuesday, March 29th vs. Houston (8:00 p.m.) and Thursday, March 31st vs. Brooklyn (7:00 p.m.).

Fans can donate canned food and non-perishable items at collection bins located at all entrances at Quicken Loans Arena at Tuesday and Thursday’s games. The “Super Six” most needed food items are: peanut butter, tuna fish, canned vegetables, canned soup, cereal and beef stew.

Fans who attend either game and donate all Super Six items will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to a First Round home Playoff game. Fans who are interested in entering the raffle must drop their Super Six items off at the Arcade Entrance (Huron/E. 6th St.) only.

Those in attendance at Thursday’s game can also help by participating in the in-arena 50/50 raffle, which will benefit Harvest for Hunger. Fans will be able to purchase tickets from volunteers from the Food Bank that night.

Tickets for both games are still available and can be purchased at Cavs.com.

About Harvest for Hunger: Harvest for Hunger is an annual 21-county food and fund drive and is one of the largest in the country. In 2015, Northeast Ohioans contributed over $4.8 million and more than 400,000 pounds of food, providing enough food for more than 19 million meals. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank organizes the campaign in partnership with three other food banks in Northeast and North Central Ohio. The food and funds raised support food pantries, hot meal programs, and shelters throughout the region.
