At the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, we believe in a community where all people live healthy and hunger-free lives. Growing and strengthening our network of hunger-relief partners is key to achieving our shared vision of a thriving community free of hunger.
Partners in the Foodbank’s network demonstrate a commitment to distributing food to feed people, advocating, engaging and convening the community in the fight to end hunger. Each partner plays a unique role in this work. Through the process of developing a new strategic plan, Foodbank 2020, we listened to our stakeholders to learn what was important to their organization and their community. What we heard loud and clear was that our work together is about more than food. It is also about capacity, support, engagement, education and advocacy, to name a few.
The purpose of the Network Partner Program is to build a strong, sustainable, collaborative network within the communities served by the Foodbank to optimize our collective work.
Whether your organization or church is an engaged partner or a champion partner, we value contributions at all levels recognizing that we are connected in service and stronger together than we are alone. We look forward to working with you!
