CLEVELAND — Due to expected extreme cold, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank canceled its food distribution service for Thursday, Jan. 20.

"In an effort to keep our staff, volunteers, and clients safe, we have decided to cancel the distribution in the City of Cleveland Municipal Lot for Thursday, January 20th. The temperature is forecasted to be below 20* with wind-chills/ “real feel” below 10* and we were unable to successfully secure shelter by ways of a tent due to labor and equipment shortages," the food bank said.
