HUNGER: One small word that affects many people in Northeast Ohio, from the youngest to the elderly.
Parents who lost their jobs or are working in jobs with low wages struggle to put food on the table for their children. Seniors on fixed income make decisions about whether to buy food or pay for necessary prescription medications. People in need face these types of decisions every day, and the Foodbank with its network of hunger-relief programs are here to help.
Who We Are
The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank was formed in 1982 by a group of community leaders who made a commitment to provide emergency food to our neighbors in need. Today, the Foodbank provides food and other essential items to member hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties: Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne. These member programs operate nearly 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods and communities where people need food.
