Cleveland Foodbank honors various agencies.
The Cleveland Foodbank will honor the successes of its member agencies for the meaningful work they do in the community throughout the year. More than 300 member agencies, staff, and volunteers will be present at the luncheon held at Landerhaven.
Special guest speaker, Anthony Rego, Giant Eagle Executive Officer, will discuss the importance of participating in the fight against hunger. Mr. Rego will also present a $1 million check to the Foodbank as part of Harvest for Hunger’s Check Out Hunger promotion this past spring.
