As the weather gets nicer, what better thing is there to do thank to come out and volunteer in our Pantry. Whether you're retired or a student looking for classroom credit this is a way to get some hours quickly while helping feed others.

At the pantry we give people bags of groceries to make their own meals at home. Our volunteers help assemble the bags that go out, organize our pantry as food comes in and keeps our facility up to code.

You can bring a friend with you or make new friends. The facility is located at 1033 Bellows Rd in Akron (near Akron University). The hours we are open are Monday - Thursday from 9 - 1 PM.

There is some lifting at times since we're in a warehouse.

Come and volunteer to help feed families and their children during these Spring and Summer days!

Thank you!
