The food bank offers participants a choice of food, usually including fresh produce. Participants are encouraged to choose a three-day supply of nutritious foods for each member of their household.
Participants must “self-proclaim” their household need by completing and signing an eligibility form which is collected during the distribution. The forms are available for registration. Eligibility is based on income and household size. For a single household, the income level is less than $ 23,339. For each additional person, add $ 8,120.
There are no winter distributions at the church, so the next one won’t be back until March 21. You can contact the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to be referred to another site, 216-738-2265 or online at Greaterclevelandfoodbank.org.
