The parking lot at the Carl B. Stokes Head Start center looked more like a farmer’s market on Tuesday, as The Council for Economic Opportunities partnered with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for a food distribution. Parents and families were able to get fruits like peaches, watermelon and cantaloupe, vegetables like cucumbers and bell peppers and dry foods like cereal, peanut butter and macaroni and cheese.

The partnership exists to provide fresh foods to Head Start families and children. It wasn’t all about food, though. There was music and dancing, too! See below for more pictures from the event. Thanks to our friends at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and great work to everyone from the Carl B. Stokes Head Start center!
