We Love Our Community, We Love Cleveland
As Cleveland’s Baker, We Know Cleveland
Orlando Baking Company takes pride in contributing to the local community and we are passionate about supporting the local causes that are important to us and to our customers. We donate to area food banks and shelters. We participate annually in notable events and fundraisers such as the March of Dimes® Signature Chefs Auction®, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank's Taste of the Browns and Market at the Food Bank, and numerous events through the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland including the Annual Run/Walk for Hunger and the Best Party of the Year fundraiser. Our employees also volunteer their time and expertise to an assortment of local non-profits.
Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland
Our strongest non-profit connection is with the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland, www.hungernetwork.org. The Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland is the largest direct emergency food network in Cuyahoga County. The Network is a system of over 100 pantries and hot meal sites that feed 60,000 each month and 25,000 of those are children.
A network of over 1,000 volunteers work year-round to feed the hungry of northeast Ohio. The Hunger Network serves 6,579,000+ meals per year.
Orlando Baking Company is proud to be one of the founding sponsors of the Hunger Network's Best Party of the Year annual fundraiser.
Greater Cleveland Food Bank
Another hunger related organization that Orlando Baking Company supports is The Cleveland Food Bank. The mission of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, www.greaterclevelandfoodbank.org, is to alleviate hunger by providing food and support to agencies that feed the hungry.
The Food Bank serves as a clearinghouse for surplus food in the greater Cleveland area. The organization solicits donations from local and national food suppliers and manufacturers -- such as Orlando Baking Company -- and then distributes that food to hunger programs. Last year, the Food Bank distributed nearly 11.6 million meals for eligible people in Northeast Ohio. The Hunger Network purchases much of the food that supplies its pantries and meal sites from the Cleveland Food Bank.
Orlando Baking Company is proud to annually participate in Market at the Food Bank and the Taste of the Browns to raise much needed funds for this hardworking organization.
Throughout the year, Orlando Baking Company also takes a supportive role in many other large and small events. Below are just a few of the organizations that Orlando Baking Company assists:
American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Arthritis Foundation, Cleveland Police Foundation, Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Organization, Cleveland Metroparks, Cleveland Pops, Cleveland Restaurant Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Greater Cleveland Police Scholarship Fund, Kidney Foundation of Ohio, March of Dimes®, Ohio Association of Professional Firefighters, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Tri-County Restaurant Association.
