ShareCorps-AkronCanton Foodbank-Hunger & Health Coordinator
 
 
 
The mission of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank is to lead a collaborative network that empowers people to experience healthy and hunger-free lives. We distribute food to feed people and we advocate, engage and convene our community in the fight to end hunger. The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank Foodbank provides food and other essential items to network partners in eight Northeast Ohio counties: Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne. These network partners operate 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods and communities where people need food. The Foodbank envisions a thriving community free of hunger. By 2025 the Foodbank and our network, in collaboration with other charitable and governmental partners, will provide access to 41 million meals, meeting the need in our service area and providing enough food for everyone struggling with hunger.

Member Duties : As our VISTA member, you will work to strengthen partnerships that connect hunger and health with local healthcare providers and the Foodbank's network of hunger-relief partners. Your primary goal will be to increase access to emergency food resources among high-risk populations and those with health-related conditions. You will grow relationships with healthcare partners and provide trainings to them in our referral program process. You will also strengthen our partnerships with nearby food pantries and other community partners. These relationships will be in the interest of piloting methods of getting food to vulnerable populations and developing nutrition education resources. Finally, through data collection and analysis, you will assess program outcomes and complete a final report, providing recommendations for the ongoing implementation, growth, and sustainability of programs.
