Hunger Walks

Sunday, May 5, 2019
Join us and your community for this annual event to benefit the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. Thanks to the interfaith community participants, in 2018 our walks raised over $24,000 for this worthy cause. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019!

Locations

  1. Fairlawn — UUCA, 3300 Morewood Rd., Fairlawn 44333. Choose between the one or two mile walk down W. Market St.
  2. Canton — Community Christian Church (Disciples), 210 North Main St., North Canton, OH 44720

Registration

Registration for both walks — Summit and Stark — is from 2-3 PM at each of the locations. Pick up a walker envelope and sticker at the registration tables where you can also donate nonperishable food items. If you have any questions or would like to receive materials to fundraise for the walk in your congregation, contact Fairlawn Walk chair, Nancy Williams, at knks97@me.com or 330-666-2287, 330-388-0955.

After the Walk

A social time beginning around 4 pm follows each walk. Join in to meet your neighbors and community.

Why Walk?

Food insecurity is an alarming issue in the Greater-Akron area. While we are making a difference through our collaborative efforts, there is still more to do to close the gap. Learn more about hunger in Summit County.
