CLEVELAND — The 24th annual Taste of the Browns was held Monday evening, a unique event that raises money for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and allows fans to mix and mingle with Browns celebrities, sample dishes from area restaurants, listen to live music, and bid on one-of-kind auction items.
The goal of the event was to raise $250,000, which would translate to one million meals for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
“Two-hundred-fifty-thousand dollars is going to do so much good to put nutritious meals on the table for our partner agencies and the clients that they serve,” said Kristin Warzocha, President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. “Unfortunately, we’re serving more people now than we were even during the pandemic. Inflation has made life tougher for seniors and for families on fixed incomes, or, frankly, families working at low-paying jobs. We need to make sure that we have meals available to put on their tables.”
