Get Involved

Join our team today to help fight hunger!

Direct Service
We use hundreds of volunteers across our dozens of sites. Our two-employee staff could not meet the demand of serving over 25,000 people a month without our dedicated volunteers. If you are available to help in a pantry, package food for distribution, aide with paperwork, assist in transportation of food, or any of the many other daily pantry tasks, we’d love to have you join our hunger fighting team. Please complete our     e-news sign-up to join our listserv of hunger news, events and volunteer opportunities.

Group Service Projects/Fundraisers
We have several organizations, groups, clubs and local businesses who coordinate regular service projects with our organization. Previous participants include Aultman, Aultcare, GAP, Premier Bank & Trust, Nationwide Insurance, North Canton JayCees and Junior League of Stark County. Options include anything from coordinating a bake sale at your office to volunteering for a large group event like the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ribs Burnoff. Please complete our volunteer form for more information and opportunities.

Ushering
Have you been to a show at the Canton Civic Center or Palace Theatre? You’ve seen our volunteers! We volunteer as ushers and ticket takers. In return for our services, we receive a donation for each volunteer. Those interested in future opportunities, please contact our usher coordinator.

Service-Learning Projects
Faculty and staff at the several local universities have shown us their repeated, dedicated service. If you would like to get your class engaged in an experiential education project, we’d happily host your enthusiasm and assist in your continued education. Please contact our Assistant Director for more information.
