CLEVELAND — Members of the Ohio National Guard have arrived at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to help with food distribution on Monday.
The Ohio National Guard will help distribute food where needed. There will be 50 members at the GCFB who will distribute food through a no-contact distribution system. Last week, the food bank distributed 61,000 pounds of food to more than 1,200 families.
Last week, Gov. DeWine activated 300 personnel top assist in humanitarian efforts across the state. Their primary duty will be to assist Ohioans during the health crisis by transporting, packaging and distributing food to homes in vulnerable areas, community-based locations and partner agencies in rural areas.
