City Buddha to launch Buddha’s Bowl Food Drive Monday November 24th

CLEVELAND OH: Cleveland Heights boutique City Buddha will launch a 30 day Buddha’s Bowl Food Drive beginning Monday, November 24, 2008. Customers who bring a nonperishable food item to City Buddha, 1807 Coventry Rd., Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 PM, beginning November 24th through December 24th will receive a 5% discount on their purchase, with a matching 5% donation given to the Cleveland Foodbank from City Buddha.

City Buddha owner Larry Collins said that he set up the food drive in response to the increased number of northeast Ohioans going hungry and the dwindling resources available during the holiday season. “We’re so grateful for City Buddha’s partnership this holiday season, especially as the need in the community continues to increase.  Now that high heating bills are about to hit households, lots of working families are going to have to make a choice between food and heat, food and medical care, or food and rent.  We’re doing all that we can to get food out the door to those in need so they don’t have to make those difficult choices.” Said Karen Pozna, Communications and Events Manager at the Cleveland Foodbank.

Only nonperishable food items will be accepted. The following items are preferred: peanut butter, tuna fish, canned vegetables, canned soup, cereal and beef stew. Donations will be collected at City Buddha, 1807 Coventry Rd., Cleveland Heights, Ohio Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 PM, beginning November 24th through December 24th. All donations will be packed and delivered to the Cleveland Foodbank by City Buddha.
