We're incredibly proud to support the Greater Cleveland Food Bank in our 1% in November campaign, where 1% of sales for the month of November will be donated to the food bank. With a need to provide 50 million meals to individuals throughout Northeast Ohio we know that our donation makes a direct impact on the day to day life of food insecure families in our area. And although the need is great throughout the year, we also recognize that families may need a little extra help during the Thanksgiving season.
This year the food bank estimates it will serve 6,400 Thanksgiving meals and for each dollar that is donated the Greater Cleveland Food Bank is able to provide 4 meals. However, providing the meals is only half of the battle. In order to prepare and serve those meals about 70 volunteers per day will be required. If you'd like to learn more about volunteering at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank you can do so here. Those volunteers also help to pack and sort 1.5 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables each month to support over 800 food pantries and other programs that receive food from the Greater Cleveland Food bank each year.
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is doing big things for our local families in need and we're beyond honored to support their efforts with our donation. We'd like you to consider placing your end of year orders in the month of November to support our 1% in November campaign and ensure that all those in need will have a nutritious meal on their table this holiday season
