Our next Akron-Canton Food Bank service project is Wednesday, September 21st from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the Akron location which is located at 350 Opportunity Parkway, Akron, OH 44307.  
The projects involve breaking down large containers of food into smaller portions for redistribution to area food pantries.  The two hours flies by as we all have fun with the project and we get the opportunity to meet a few new people from other organizations/companies that are there volunteering as well.    
ALL volunteers need to apply/register in order to volunteer (See below my signature for the link). I am the volunteer coordinator for the Akron Rotary Club and you will need the Akron Rotary Club’s address for signing up.
