“CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) – A food giveaway benefits more than 200 Cleveland area families by providing relief from soaring food prices.
The Salaam Clinic on Euclid Avenue in Cleveland held the grocery giveaway for two hours on Sunday, after receiving a gift of $12,500 from Islamic Relief, USA.
The bright green grocery bags included bread, rice, potatoes, fruit, frozen chicken and beef as well as other staples. People who walked-up or drove-up received not only a bag of groceries, but bottled water, a hot meal to go and a home medical kit.
Duane Hawkins was thankful for the help, “Everything’s going up. So, you gotta get what you can, while you can get it.”
