Greater Cleveland Food Bank Marks 40 Years Of Service; Cholangiocarcinoma Summit

Every day thousands of people in Northeaset Ohio, including many children, don't know where their next meal is coming from or whether there will even be a next meal.  For 40 years the Greater Cleveland Food Bank has been meeting the need to prevent those who are food insecure from going hungry.   The organization now distributes 45 million pounds of food each year. As the Greater Cleveland Food Bank marks its anniversary, milestone we'll discuss how it's focus has changed and what still needs to be done. Then, this week baseball's All-Stars "stood up to cancer" at the All-Star Game.  We'll meet a local woman who has been standing up to a rare form of the disease for nearly a decade.
