Welcome to the Euclid Hunger Center
The Euclid Hunger Center is a non-profit (501c3) organization that exists for the sole purpose of providing quality food staples and grocery items for needy Euclid residents.
A small army of dedicated volunteers, led by a part-time manager with assistance from a part-time bookkeeper, raise funds, pick up purchased and donated food from the Cleveland Foodbank and several other sites, sort those items and distribute them twice weekly from Room 17 at Shore Cultural Center,
291 E 222nd Street, Euclid.
Although we do make exceptions in emergency situations, the people whom we serve must verify their family size and establish an income level below 130% of the federal poverty level.
We know it is difficult to live on incomes below 130% of the poverty level. We know how a job loss, accident, illness or other unforeseen event can cripple individuals and families financially and force them to choose between paying for necessities such as food, rent or medicine; and we know that the ability to purchase an adequate amount of nutritious food is often the first need to be sacrificed.
The Euclid Hunger Center doesn't make judgments as to how an individual or family comes to be needy. We accept them as they are – fellow human beings in need; we do what we can – provide a once-a- month opportunity to secure a three-day supply of quality food staples and grocery items; and we do it while holding ourselves accountable for the resources we manage and adhering to all the rules and regulations that govern the operation of food pantries like ours.
Won’t you join us in this noblest of work?
Without volunteers, it would not be possible to pick-up and distribute food bi-weekly. But that is not all! Euclid Hunger Center volunteers also help with food drives, unloading food deliveries, administrative tasks and special events. We hope you will consider joining us.
It's very simple: the Euclid Hunger Center could not operate without the many financial donors who so generously support our work. Every dollar contributed results in four meals for hungry people throughout Northeast Ohio.
The Euclid Hunger Center will Kick Off Summer on Thursday, June 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Pavilion at Briardale Greens, 24131 Briardale Avenue in Euclid. Help up welcome summer and enjoy good food, beer, wine and music! Haz Matthews (aka Haz Mat), on-air personality and production director at 93.1 WZAK, will be the DJ for the evening. Bring your friends. We want to see you at Kick Off Summer!
