GET INVOLVED
TODAY!

Our dedicated volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. We have rewarding volunteer opportunities across a variety of our programs, including options to fit almost any schedule.

Volunteering Opportunities

Given the increasing level of food insecurity in our area, further exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic, we are always in need of volunteers.

Weekly Food Distribution

Our weekly food distribution takes place on Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri during the last 3 weeks of each month (weather permitting). Volunteers help with distributing packaged food and produce at 5 locations across Greater Akron. 

Kids Bag Program

Volunteers meet on Wednesday afternoons at Byrider Hall at St. Sebastian's to assemble bags filled with food for the weekend for Akron Public School students. We currently serve 12 schools with this program, and the need continues to increase.  

GSHC
Garden

During many Saturday's April-September, our volunteers with a green thumb are busy preparing our produce garden. Each year, we are able to distribute thousands of pounds of fresh produce from our garden behind Byrider Hall.
