The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank distributes grocery and household products to individuals and families in need through a network of member agencies across eight counties in Northeast Ohio. The Foodbank works to coordinate local and national hunger relief resources.
Foodbank partner agencies include church pantries, homeless shelters, the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and more. Agencies must be a 501(c)3 public charity or equivalent status from the IRS to qualify for membership. Most churches qualify for Foodbank membership under this section of the IRS Code.
Agencies located in the Foodbank's service area (Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne counties) can be members of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank's hunger relief network.
