Description

Nicole Flower likes to build relationships. A year ago, she and her husband, Andy, decided to open a food pantry that operates from the basement of her Highland Square church, Akron Christian Reformed Church. The food pantry is called “The Landing” and feeds 50-plus families and individuals who struggle to afford groceries each week. The Landing also is a member agency of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. A dinner and dessert are regularly supplied for the guests at The Landing. There are tables and chairs, games for children, and sometimes even live music and always a pot of coffee for visitors to enjoy. The Landing, located at 50 Marshall Ave. in Akron, is open Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m. For information, call (330) 733-8844. Visit www.akronist.com.
