Cleveland Indians partnering with Harvest For Hunger for food donations

In tonight's Indians news update, the Cleveland Indians will be partnering with Harvest For Hunger to take a swing at ending starvation in Northeast Ohio.

Per Laura Johnston of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, "Greater Cleveland Food Bank volunteers will man the gates at the Indians game at 3:05 p.m. Saturday, when the Tribe takes on the Colorado Rockies. Fans are encouraged to donate money or one of the "super six" items: peanut butter, canned soup, canned vegetables, beef stew, cereal and tuna fish."

In addition, every $1 donated to the cause pays for four nutritious meals for those in need.

Harvest For Hunger is an annual campaign that centers on providing sustenance to the hungry in 21 Ohio counties.

According to Johnston, "the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, Greater Cleveland Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley and Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio work together on the effort, which aims to collect enough food and money for 17 million meals. Those meals cost nearly $4.2 million."

So if there was any time to both support your Tribe and an amazing cause, be sure to get your tickets early for Saturday's matinee against the Rockies.
