The 10th Annual “Carving Out Hunger” at the Foodbank

The 10th Annual Carving out Hunger Program is sponsored by the Charter One Foundation. This yearly event took place at the Cleveland Food Bank and was a great way to get volunteers involved to help make food for those in need this Holiday Season.

It was my first time personally at the Foodbank and I had such a great time. I am considering becoming a volunteer myself as a way to give back to those who need it most! We spoke with President of the Charter One Foundation, Joseph DiRocco on the importance of volunteering and how the partnership with the Foodbank has helped improve the Community.
