Everyone needs nutritious food to thrive, and in every community, people are working hard to provide for themselves and their families. Yet, 1 in 8 people and 1 in 6 children in the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank's service area may struggle with hunger.
This September, join the Foodbank in the movement to fight hunger. Your voice, actions and commitment will help ensure every community has the food they need to thrive. Because when people are fed, futures are nourished.
Every action―big or small―is one step closer to a community free of hunger. Join the nationwide movement to fight hunger by donating, volunteering or advocating.
