HARVEST FOR HUNGER
2014 CHALLENGE RENEWED
Executive Russ Pry addresses the audience at the Akron/Canton Regional Foodbank’s 23rd annual Harvest for Hunger Food and Funds Drive. The drive will run March 1 through April 30, 2014. And of course that means the 2014 County of Summit vs. City of Akron Challenge is on!! The County remained the champs in 2013, so let’s not break the trend.
Be on the look out for events in support of Harvest for Hunger along with the Officeholder sponsored Basket Fundraiser. Baskets will be on display in the 4th atrium of the Ohio Building on Friday, March 28 and Friday, April 11.
According to the Foodbank the “Super Six Items” needed are:
• Canned Vegetables
• Canned Soup
• Canned Beef Stew
• Canned Tuna
• Peanut Butter
• Boxed Cereal
For more information or to participate, please contact the Department of Communications.
