Friends in the Akron community,

The Akron Area Interfaith Council and the Hunger Walk Committee, thank you for 14 years of overwhelming support of our annual Hunger Walk. We appreciate seeing all the various faith groups walking with us each year.

Once again, we are asking you to make year 15 the best. Last year between the Fairlawn Walk and the Stark County Walk, we contributed $31,506.84 to the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank. However, “the 15% increase in food donations last year was not enough to cover the monumental 30% increase in demand” according to Dan Flowers, the CEO of the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank. The food insecurity rate for 2023 was 11.2%, but the child food insecurity was 14.9%. One in seven children struggle with hunger.

Our hope is that you will give generously and walk with us this year in the 15th Annual Hunger Walk on May 5th.


Nancy Williams, Chair of the Hunger Walk Committee

The Stark County Walk will also occur on May 5th at 3:00pm in Canton.

2021, 12th Annual AAIC Fairlawn Hunger Walk information (2021):

The efforts of our AAIC community and others who reached a little deeper last year enabled us to collect an amazing $36,496.42 that went directly to the Akron-Canton Regional Food bank.  Unfortunately, we needed to redouble our efforts again in 2021 since there was a 31% increase in food insecure people in Summit Co. and a 44% increase in food insecure children.
