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 600 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.
