CLEVELAND — One week after giving away food to more than 4,000 Northeast Ohioans in need, the Greater Cleveland Food Bank hosted another drive-thru distribution on Tuesday.

The distribution, which was held at Cleveland's Muni Lot, began a bit earlier than its scheduled noon start time, and is expected to continue until 4 p.m. Due to safety concerns, recipients must clear the trunk of their vehicle prior to the distribution and remain in their vehicle to receive food. A photo ID is also required.

Some people began lining up for the food drive as early as 9 a.m.
