It only takes 90 minutes a day to make a difference! That's how long it takes to go to one of our Community Centers in Akron to serve hot meals to our community.

We serve meals through the Salvation Army at our Maple Street location, Patterson Park Community Center and the Summit Lake Community Center and now the Kenmore Community Center.

All centers are served indoors and Covid-19 rules are enforced.

The times we serve our hot meals are as follows:
Maple Street - serves 11-12 (arrive 10:45)
Patterson Park - serves 11-12 (arrive 10:45, 10:30 if you want to ride to the location)
Summit Lake - serves 11:30-12 (arrive 11:15, 10:30 if you want to ride to the site)
Kenmore - serves 11:30-12 (arrive 11:15, 10:30 if you want to ride to the site)

Transportation is provided from Maple Street to and from our Community Centers if needed.

Thank you and God bless!
