    Welcome to the Foodbank:

    The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank is located at the corner of Dart Ave and Opportunity Pkwy off of OH-59 near Downtown Akron. Our address is 350 Opportunity Pkwy, Akron, OH 44307. Get Directions.

    When you arrive, please park in the gated, Shipping & Receiving lot and use the RED Volunteer Entrance to enter the building.

    What to wear:

    It’s best to dress in layers.  The weather outside effects the temperature inside our warehouse.

    Safety is our priority! Please note that open-toed shoes and jewelry are not permitted in our warehouse when handling food. Comfortable shoes are recommended as you may be on your feet the entire time.

    Our volunteer project:

    Volunteer projects are based on the daily needs of the Foodbank. The time you give sorting and inspecting food donations, labeling product for repackaging, or packaging bulk items helps us provide 84,000 meals to people struggling with hunger in our community, each and every day!
