CLEVELAND — Community group Garden Valley Neighborhood House is holding a drive-thru food bank, and they are encouraging residents to fill out their census forms and bring it with them when they go to pick up their bag of food.

Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, of Ward 5, and Guild President of the Urban League of Greater Cleveland Billy L. Sharp were in attendance Thursday handing out food and collecting something else in return from residents: their 2020 Census form.
