You can make a difference in the lives of people facing food insecurity.
Coordinate a food and funds drive with your family, business, school, faith-based organization or social group. The Foodbank encourages collecting funds as well as food. Drives can be created for our Harvest for Hunger Campaign in the spring, during Hunger Action Month in September, for the Holiday Campaign, your birthday or any time of year!
We consider your transportation of collected food as part of your donation. Your delivery to one of our warehouses allows us to use our resources in a cost-effective manner. Please call 330.535.6900 to setup a drop-off appointment or schedule your drop off above.
All financial donations should be placed in one envelope and kept separately from any food donations. Please list the following information on the outside of the envelope for receipt purposes:
- Organization Name
- Contact Name
- Address Phone
- Total Donation Amount
Please make checks payable to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
Food vs. Financial Donations
Financial donations have an immediate impact by providing meals. Since we are in the business of receiving surplus food, financial donations allow us to purchase items to complement our varying menu while aiding in the process of rescuing and distributing food to our neighbors in need. While both food and financial donations are extremely necessary and valued, because of our large purchasing power, we can make your dollar go further. Every dollar donated to the Foodbank helps provide several meals to our neighbors in need.
See what happens to your donations after you bring them to the Foodbank!
