ShareCorps -AkronCanton Foodbank- Voices Capacity Builder
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 member agencies in eight Northeast Ohio counties: Carrol, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas, and Wayne. These memebrs agencies operate 500 food pantires, 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 2050, 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.
