YOU can help your neighbor today with only an hour a month. Help deliver food to your neighbor from the Akron-Newstead food pantry and promote better health, nutrition, and overall well-being. You can be the bright moment in someone's day.

  • Assignments are for the first Tuesday of Every Month.
  • You pick up the pantry bags and deliver to our clients. 6- 12 bags per month.
  • Should take you about an hour 1 Tuesday per month, great for people who drive in the snow.
