ShareCorps - AkronCanton Foodbank - Community Engagement
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 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.
