Food Ministries

Heart 4 the City sponsors food ministries for the community. We partner with Akron Canton Regional Food Bank to bring their Direct Distribution program to the east side of Akron on the 1st Thursday of every month. From 9-11am, we distribute approximately 10,000 lbs of food. Please bring a photo I.D. 

Every Thursday night (except the 1st Thursday of the month), our Food Pantry will be open from 6-7:30pm.  Please bring a photo I.D.

Seasonal Ministries

This is a list of ministries that happen seasonally at Heart 4 the City.

  • Bike Club

    Kids involved in this six week program learn to ride and perform routine maintenance on their bikes while learning lessons about Jesus' love for all of us. At the end of the six week program they are allowed to take their bikes home to keep.  Registration is open at the end of May.


  • Good Soil Garden

    We are planting ‘seeds’ of kindness and caring for one another! Our growing season provides a bounty of zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, radishes, lettuce, potatoes (to name a few) in The Good Soil Garden! Our harvest is for sale every Wednesday during our growing season. Stop by and say hello if you see us out!

    Each year, we accept donations of new, unwrapped toys (dolls, action figures, cars, baby toys, etc), socks, gloves, clothes, make-up and nail polish for older girls, small increment gift cards, wrapping paper, gift bags, etc. during our annual toy drive.


    Donations are accepted from Halloween to Thanksgiving.
