The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank was formed in 1982 by a group of community leaders who made a commitment to provide emergency food to our neighbors in need. Today, the Foodbank provides food and other essential items to member hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties: Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne. These member programs operate 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods and communities where people need food.

As for our mission towards our neighbors, we are to guide them to the Lord Jesus Christ and to having a personal relationship with Him, founded on love.
The mission of Warrior Dog Rescue is to save the dogs that are left abandoned in shelters, are surrendered by their owners, and those that are being abused and neglected. We are committed to providing them the medical care they need, helping them to overcome their past by providing them loving, educated foster homes, finding them their perfect forever home by means of a thorough adoption process, and guiding them on their journey into their new life. They all deserve a “good dog life… every single one of them.”
Over the last two decades, the world has witnessed remarkable progress on human development— reduced poverty, extended life expectancy, lower maternal mortality, and expanded children’s education. But these improvements have been far too slow and too inequitable. Moreover, human behavior is degrading natural resources at an unsustainable rate.
At WRI, we believe there’s a better way. A better future is possible. With focused effort and bold action, we can drive systemic change that will improve lives, drive economic growth, reduce inequity, and ensure the natural world can thrive.
