Join the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and the Cleveland Browns to raise critical funds for the Food Bank. Since the start of the pandemic and the economic crisis that has followed, the Food Bank is serving more people than ever before in its 40-year history. One-third of the people being served are turning to emergency food programs for assistance for the first time ever.

"The Greater Cleveland Food Bank has been tackling hunger in Northeast Ohio thanks to the generosity of our community and their support of events like Taste of the Browns. This year is unique and the need has only increased with the pandemic. While we cannot gather to celebrate our city's love for the Cleveland Browns, we can still make a difference by tuning in to the telethon and making a donation," said Kristin Warzocha, President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. "The money raised will help provide thousands of meals to Northeast Ohioans in need."

This telethon will raise critical funds for the Food Bank, auctioning autographed memorabilia, and more.
