CLEVELAND — The Greater Cleveland Food Bank is making sure no child goes hungry this summer with the roll out of the Summer Food Service Program, which gives thousands of meals to children and families in Northeast Ohio.

In its six-county service area, the food bank said there are approximately 81,000 food insecure children who rely on breakfast and lunches during the school year. The food bank kitchen will provide nearly 6,500 meals a day not only for children, but seniors and others in Northeast Ohio.

The distribution sites will be spread throughout the area, with nearly 60 sites at places like the Cuyahoga County Public Library branches starting in July. The food bank will also distribute grab and go meals to underserved areas through its Outreach Truck and Sprinter Van.

Most Summer Meals programs kicked off June 1 and run through August 7. Through the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, nearly 60 sites will provide breakfast and lunch for children while school is not in session.
