WRAAA works with local organizations to help support the nutrition needs of our customers in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina counties.
WRAAA Partners with Local Organizations to Provide Hot Meals to Those In Need
This summer WRAAA partnered with Edwins Restaurant and Leadership Institute, and Gordon Food Service on a new nutrition program to serve the community, called Circle of Food. This program prepares and delivers hot meals to thousands of people in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina Counties. View Channel 19's coverage.
Last fall and in 2018, WRAAA also planned two substantial turkey giveaway campaigns with numerous partners across its five counties. Similar to the Circle of Food, the effort required tremendous coordinating of volunteer time, and community partners to assist with transportation and distribution.
According to June Taylor, Chief of People, Performance and Quality Initiatives at WRAAA, "We look for strategic partners who are like-minded and want to get out into the community to help their fellow citizens. And, with these projects, that is exactly what we found."
WRAAA thanks all of its partners that help willingly on these projects and seeks to add more projects like the Turkey Giveaways and the Circle of Food project to support families who need assistance with more food and better nutrition. If you are interested in partnering with us, please contact: email@example.com.
