Since 2016, Hunger Network staff, students, pharmacy experts, and health care professionals have completed more than 15,000 preventive health screenings to 2,300 Cuyahoga County residents. Our team continues to schedule educational speakers and present materials on topics such as nutrition, healthy cooking, and mental health.
