CLEVELAND (June 28, 2023) – ExactCare employees recently participated in the Greater Cleveland Food Bank’s Harvest for Hunger campaign, a community-wide food and funds drive to fight hunger. The team raised more than $14,000 to support the 2023 campaign, an amount that can buy more than 42,000 nutritious meals for people in need.
One in six Ohioans struggles with food insecurity and frequently must choose between paying for food or other basic necessities—such as their utilities or medications—according to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Often, many people who receive services from ExactCare are also at risk of experiencing challenges with food insecurity.
“At ExactCare, our mission is to improve patient health and quality of life through the services we provide, but we also understand that there are many factors beyond a person’s medication that can influence their ability to successfully manage their health and overall wellbeing—and food insecurity is one of them,” said Marty Butler, ExactCare President & CFO. “We want to help address these challenges, too, so that our communities—including the patients we care for—have the best possible opportunity to live healthier lives. People shouldn’t have to choose between paying for food or basic utilities. And I couldn’t be more proud of our team for their support to help overcome these challenges.”
Beyond supporting Harvest for Hunger, ExactCare has a strategic program in place to screen patients for social determinants of health (SDoH) challenges. Those who report concerns regarding food insecurity are connected to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank for support, with plans for further geographical expansion of this program in the near future.
Harvest for Hunger is one of the largest annual food and funds drives in the nation, providing support through four food banks to 21 counties in Ohio. Every dollar donated to Harvest for Hunger helps provide three nutritious meals. In total, the 2023 campaign set a new record—raising more than $9.775 million and thousands of pounds of food to provide nearly 29.5 million meals.
ExactCare is a national medication management and pharmacy provider that helps people with complex medical needs overcome medication-related and chronic care challenges.
