Buehler’s Fresh Foods was recently awarded the 2016 Leadership Partner Award for their support of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

President and COO of Buehler’s, Dan Shanahan, says, “We are proud to partner with the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and we support its core value of ending hunger in the communities that we serve.”
Buehler’s engages its employees to participate in the Harvest for Hunger campaign with different activities each year. Past events have included a polar bear jump, store employee dress down days, a 50/50 raffle and a pie-in-the-face to one “lucky” manager. The monies collected from the events are added to the generous contributions made by Buehler’s customers. For each dollar raised, the Foodbank can provide 4 meals to someone in need.
