Nationwide Renews Commitment as Foodbank Leadership Partner by Contributing 180,000 Meals

Aug 26, 2015

The Nationwide Foundation awarded the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank a gift in the amount of $45,000, which will provide as many as 180,000 meals to food insecure families in the region. The award is a part of a recent gift of $1.4 million to Feeding America that will address food insecurity and help provide healthy options to food banks across the country. This year marks the seventh year of the Nationwide Foundation’s partnership with Feeding America. 

Nationwide and the Nationwide Foundation have a longtime commitment to ending hunger that goes far beyond the foundation’s financial contributions. For decades, Nationwide and the Nationwide Foundation, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, have been strong supporters of Feeding America and its member food banks such as the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

Nationwide associates donate numerous volunteer hours to ACRFB annually and participate in the Harvest for Hunger Campaign each spring.
