Feeding Bodies & Minds 

It is our belief that in order to thrive, individuals must have their basic necessities met.

To meet these needs, the Akron Urban League has partnered with Good Samaritan Hunger center to provide weekly food distributions. On the final three Thursdays of each month, individuals may receive a 3 day supply of food on a first come, first served basis.


  • Be over the age of 18
  • Reside in Summit County
  • Present a valid photo ID

Food Distributions are held from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm at the Akron Urban League, 440 Vernon Odom Blvd, Akron, Ohio 44307. We ask that guests line up no earlier than 4:00 pm.

For more information, please call (330)434-3101.

We are always looking for volunteers to assist with our weekly food distribution. Volunteers may assist our staff with loading and unloading food, sorting and packing bags and transporting bags to participant vehicles. Our food distribution is a perfect volunteer opportunity for corporate groups, churches, sororities / fraternities and other civic organizations.
