You spoke.We listened.

On the Table is a one-of-a-kind initiative, organized by Akron Community Foundation, where thousands of diverse residents from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds gather to share a meal and discuss meaningful ideas to strengthen our community. It's an opportunity to shape our region into a strong, vibrant, safe and dynamic place to live and work.

Our first On The Table event on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017 was a huge success. Over 3,500 participants responded to the survey which provided us a deeper understanding of the conversations.
