Feed the Hope

The second Friday of September is designated as Feed the Hope Ashtabula County Day. We organize over 650 volunteers in one location to package over 200,000 shelf stable meals in a two-hour period. The food is distributed to the Ashtabula County food pantries for inclusion in the boxes to individuals and families. Throughout the year, we raise money by sponsorships to help with the funding of the event. If you are interested in a sponsorship or volunteering for the event, contact the Executive Director at barbk@countryneighbor.org or (440)437-6311.

Postal Workers Food Drive

This program is a national Food Drive coordinated in partnership with Campbell Soup and the Postal Workers. Each year on the second Saturday of May, postal workers around Ashtabula County collect food when they deliver the mail. The food is distributed by the Ashtabula County Food Bank to each of the pantries located throughout the county. Contact Diane at (440)437-6311 for more information.

Harvest for Hunger Drive

Why is your help critical to our hunger relief efforts? Unfortunately, the number of people turning to food pantries for emergency food continues to rise. Harvest for Hunger is an important source of support for our Ashtabula County food pantries and the thousands of people turning to them for help. The need is great, but with your support we will make a difference! For every dollar raised, the Ashtabula County Food Bank can provide four meals to an individual. Contact Diane at (440)437-6311 for more information.
