Training New Volunteers

The network partners and programs of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank rely upon volunteers to support those in need in our community. To assist agencies, the Foodbank hosts regular training opportunities free of charge to ensure that all volunteers have access to quality training and are prepared for their role as a food program volunteer.

Each partner agency of the Foodbank is required to have staff trained in Civil Rights and Food Safety, and all new staff and/or volunteers managing the program are highly encouraged to attend the full New Partner Agency Orientation (which includes Civil Rights and Food Safety Training). Trainings regularly take place at the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. To find a full schedule of trainings or to RSVP for an upcoming training, visit our Events & Trainings page.
