Food Bank Distribution

Sep 22, 2020

Phase II of our Need a Mask, Take a Mask campaign began in early September. This phase focuses on community engagement and leveraging partnerships to provide free face masks to those in Cuyahoga County. On Thursday, September 17, staff from GCRTA’s Marketing Department joined volunteers from the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for their weekly food distribution. Along with the food boxes, we passed out mask kits to those in need, serving 2,662 households- which is an estimated 7,986 individuals!

GCRTA plans to participate again in October and we are committed to distributing masks to the community to keep everyone safe. Check back to for updates. To sign up as a volunteer or for information on the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, visit

Since June, we have donated over 7,000 masks to the Greater Cleveland community.
