Cleveland Airport Fast Park Raises Money, Food for Cleveland Foodbank, Inc.

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - September 14, 2009) - Airport Fast Park, an off-site airport parking company located at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, and its customers are raising money and food for the Cleveland Foodbank, Inc. The company's second annual food drive will take place Sept. 14 through Oct. 11. All items will be donated to Cleveland Foodbank, Inc. Airport Fast Park will donate $1 for every pound of non-perishable food donated by customers.

Food banks across the country are struggling to keep up with demand this year. According to Feeding America, the demand for food assistance has risen 30 percent in the past year.

"We received such a tremendous response from our customers last year during our first food drive," said Melanie Chavez, chief marketing officer at Fast Park, "that we couldn't imagine not doing it again this year. We hope to once again be able to contribute and make a significant impact in our community."

Airport Fast Park is conducting similar food drives at each of its off-site airport parking facilities across the country.

Last year, Airport Fast Park collected nearly 1,300 pounds of food for Cleveland Foodbank, Inc.. Collectively, the company donated nearly 5,000 pounds of food in 2008. Fast Park's monetary match will help to feed more people in need this year.

"We are grateful to have the support from Fast Park and its customers this year," said Lindsay Doerr, Harvest for Hunger Campaign Manager the Cleveland Foodbank. "The Foodbank's need for food has increased dramatically this year, so this food drive is important in helping us to serve an ever growing number of people."
