For 2018, WKSU is introducing Refer-a-Friend, giving current members a chance to donate 10 additional meals to the food banks if a friend – or relative or co-worker – they refer becomes a member as well. Download the Refer-a-Friend form below!

ACRFB President and CEO Daniel Flowers says, “I begin every day with WKSU, it’s one of my main sources for news and information. The station truly is a community resource, and the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank is beyond grateful for the opportunity to partner together once again for the WKSU Hunger Challenge. The Hunger Challenge helps create awareness about hunger within our community, and encourages listeners to get involved. Together, WKSU and your Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank can be the difference between hunger and hope.”

GCFB President and CEO, Kristin Warzocha adds, “We’re so grateful to WKSU for allowing their donors to choose to give even more to the community - meals that will help so many this holiday season. And to the donors who help us by giving meals, thank you. This campaign is such a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness and fight hunger!”
