Heights Emergency Food Center wants you

Many volunteers help feed the hungry of Cleveland Heights, University Heights, South Euclid, and Lyndhurst...but more are always needed. The Heights Emergency Food Center (HEFC) needs your assistance. Opened in October of 1981 with the aid of the Heights Interfaith Council, HEFC provides more than 575 families with a three day supply of food once a month. Staffed by volunteers and overseen by a volunteer board of directors, the nonprofit agency is supported through gifts from religious institutions; service and social organizations; public, parochial and private schools; federal grants and supermarket settlements; and individuals.

The Center uses the resources of the Northeast Ohio Food Bank, a purchasing agent for non-profit agencies. This enables the purchase of five dollars worth of food for each dollar donated. 100% of donations to HEFC is spent on food. Community Development Block Grants from the city of Cleveland Heights currently cover overhead expenses and Disciples Christian Church, (formerly Euclid Avenue Christian Church) on Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights, houses the program.
