Your Support Makes a Significant Impact!
Your Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank remains steadfast in our commitment to support families facing hunger. Our region has experienced a 31 percent increase in food insecurity because of COVID-19, and we expect it will take families months, if not years, to rebound. Your support means more meals for the individuals, children and seniors facing food insecurity.
We’re also committed to the success of our restaurant partners who help provide meals to our struggling neighbors through our prepared and perishable food rescue program, Community Harvest. Seventy-seven percent of restaurant operators have laid off or furloughed employees because of the pandemic, while 61 percent of restaurant operators say their restaurant will not be profitable within the next 6 months.
