Greater Cleveland’s children need your help.

Good health starts with a good meal.

At United Way of Greater Cleveland, we don’t just see people for who they are; we see them for who they can become. We see the potential for success in kids who struggle with hunger every day. With your help, our food programs ensure thousands of Cleveland-area children get a healthy start to their day. Kids should have hungry minds, not hungry tummies. Teachers are seeing kids’ grades improve. And kids are blossoming in ways they never imagined.
