MetroHealth and Partners Deliver Fresh Produce during Pandemic

The MetroHealth Institute for H.O.P.E. and the Greater Cleveland Food Bank are partnering to pack and deliver fresh produce to community members in need. Amid worries about COVID-19, MetroHealth decided not to cancel its monthly, on-site food distribution at the health system’s main campus—and instead make home deliveries. The health system looked at its top utilizer ZIP codes and identified people who regularly visit MetroHealth to get free produce. The MetroHealth Institute for H.O.P.E. is providing food, supplies and other assistance to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Watch the video.
