Spring is here, bringing with it warmer weather and a host of great foodie fundraising events. On Sunday, May 4, the Greater Cleveland Foodbank is hosting Market at the Foodbank, a strolling food and wine extravaganza.
There will be food to sample from some of Cleveland’s finest restaurants, including Spice Kitchen and Bar, The Greenhouse Tavern, AMP 150, and the Zack Bruell Restaurant Group. There will also be plenty of wine and beer to enjoy!
Beyond just delicious food and tempting beverages, the event offers an opportunity to see the Greater Cleveland Foodbank’s impressive facility. If you’ve never been, the Foodbank is a great place to check out both to see how well run the operation is, as well as to get a sense of the level of need that the Foodbank serves.
Proceeds from Market at the Foodbank benefit the Harvest for Hunger campaign, which is one of the largest community food and funds drives in the country. This year’s Harvest for Hunger goal is to generate 17 million meals through the campaign. Attendance at Market at the Foodbank, as well as participation in the great auctions and raffles that evening, go a long way toward achieving this goal!
