Feeding People and Fighting Hunger
"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." -Mother Teresa
On February 11th, we held our February Unified Promise at the Akron-Canton Regional FoodBank. With 1 in 7 individuals in the Akron area classified as food insecure, our help to fight hunger was needed.
We had a great turnout with 13 volunteers in attendance. Together we sorted, inspected, and repackaged donated food for 3 hours alongside other local volunteers, sorting 30,656 pounds of food to produce 25,546 meals total. The time we gave helped people struggling with hunger in our community, each and every day.
A big thank you to all of our volunteers who attended both young and young-at-heart. A special thank you to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank for working with us, and for all the good they do in our community.
