Each Sunday this ministry provides opportunities for Trinity members, and members of other area congregations, to be in community with our hungry brothers and sisters. Every week, volunteer cooks and servers offer a hot lunch.
Greater Cleveland Congregations
Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) is a non-partisan coalition of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County. An affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation, the nation’s oldest network of faith-based community organizing groups, GCC unites people across lines of race, class, religion and geography to promote public, private and civic sector actions that strengthen and improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Trinity’s hunger ministry, Food For Families, works to provide food for the students of our neighboring Marion-Sterling School as well as their families. Trinity Cathedral in January 2014 entered into a partnership with the Cleveland Food Bank and on the second and fourth Fridays of each month, the Food Bank’s Mobile School Pantry Program delivers food to the school – enough food to feed all 371 students. Learn more about Trinity’s program here. Contact Ginger Bitikofer to become involved.
Trinity’s Urban Farm is located on Cedar Road between East 35th and East 36th Streets. Farm volunteers plant vegetables, fruits, and herbs that help feed our hungry neighbors who come on Sundays to our A Place at the Table ministry. Flower gardens help brighten a nearby neighborhood. All are welcome, from novice gardeners to experts. Learn more. To become involved, please contact urban farm leader Scott Blanchard or staff liaison Ginger Bitikofer.
Trinity Cathedral’s neighboring elementary school, Marion-Sterling is a pre-K-8 Cleveland Metropolitan School District School. It is located at 3033 Central Avenue, less than one mile from Trinity Cathedral. Each year, CMSD targets the lowest 10-15 percent of schools for immediate and dramatic action. According to CMSD, the investment schools represent “not only our clearest need, but also our greatest opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students.”
For many years, Trinity members and friends have been offering their time, talents and treasures in a variety of ways to help make a difference in the lives of Marion-Sterling students and their families. Learn more.
