NORTHEAST OHIO FOOD & WINE EVENT ALERT — NUMBER TWO: Spring benefit season is on a roll, and the next to share on my list of annual favorites is the 2016 Market at the Food Bank to benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank‘s Harvest for Hunger campaign.
This annual Harvest for Hunger fundraiser features cuisine and beverages from more than 50 of Northeast Ohio’s restaurants & beverage purveyors (the incredible list is here on the event website), live entertainment, auction items to bid on, local celebrities to mingle with and the opportunity to help the Food Bank’s most important task: alleviate hunger in the community.
In case you’re not familiar, Harvest for Hunger “is an annual awareness campaign aimed at fighting hunger in 21 of Ohio’s counties… a joint effort of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, Greater Cleveland Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley and Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio.” (from the Harvest for Hunger website) You can see it’s wide spread effect in our community, and supporting its efforts is becoming more important than ever.
This year’s Market at the Food Bank event runs 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, located at 15500 South Waterloo Road in Cleveland. General admission tickets are $125 per person and includes all of the mentioned above plus valet parking. Tickets can be purchased online at this webpage.
