Zagara's event raised funds for food bank

To the Editor:

The efforts and generosity of Zagara's patrons and employees are to be applauded as the results of the Harvest for Hunger at Zagara's Marketplace, during the month of March, are revealed:

Items generously donated by Joanne Lynch of Humphrey Popcorn, Bill Mitchell of Mitchell’s Fine Chocolates, John Emerman of the Stone Oven, and Coca-Cola generated $663.51. To that amount, John Zagara added a donation of $500, as he had pledged when we first discussed the idea. Cashiers at the registers reported a collection of an additional $956. A grand total of $2,119.51 was raised at Zagara’s Marketplace for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. At four nutritious meals per dollar, that amount translates to 8,478 meals for those in need.

I would like to thank the vendors, patrons and employees of Zagara’s Marketplace for their support and generosity in making this event a huge success.
