Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank looking for holiday boost - The-review

This is the time of the year when it counts," Flowers said, adding that he hopes communities rally to help. GateHouse Media Ohio, owner of The Alliance Review, Ashland Times-Gazette, Record-Courier, Daily Jeffersonian, The Daily Record and other NE Ohio media properties, also is partnering with the food bank to raise awareness among readers across the region. "We hope our efforts to raise awareness inspires people to go to the FoodBank's website and donate immediately," GateHouse Media Ohio Group Publisher Bill Albrecht said Tuesday. Year-round need Since being formed in 1982, the Akron-Canton Foodbank has grown into a $40 million per-year operation, with more than $30 million of food and other items distributed last year. The agency works with a network of more than 500 food pantries, hot-meal sites, shelters and hunger-relief programs to distribute food for families in need. That includes more than 90 groups in Stark County. Other partners are located in Summit, Tuscarawas, Carroll, Holmes, Wayne, Portage and Medina counties. Surplus food and other essential items come in from around the country, Flowers said. The agency also collects food from more than 150 donors every week. Once collected, food is stored at the agency's warehouse in Akron until it can be distributed to partner organizations that pass it along to families in need. Most people helped by the food bank and its partners live above the federal poverty level, which means they aren't eligible for assistance from programs such as food stamps or free meals at schools, Flowers said. The food bank estimates that one in seven people, including one in five children, in its eight-county service area is affected by food insecurity, which refers to a U.S. Department of Agriculture measure of the lack of regular access to nutritional food for an active and healthy life. In Stark County, it's estimated that 53,880 people, or 14.4 percent of the population, are food insecure. That group includes 17,190 children. Filling the gaps The ...

Ford, Walmart test self-driving grocery delivery service - The Spokesman-Review

While Walmart has made no commitment with Ford in the long term, the alliance is significant. "Joining forces with Walmart automatically taps a huge pool of customers and will help provide all sorts of scenarios for testing," said Ivan Drury, senior analyst at Edmunds. Stephanie Brinley, principal analyst at IHS Markit, agreed. "Ford is already looking at how people interact with autonomous delivery vehicles. This is an expansion of a program already started there, but it applies to a different type of delivery. Hopefully, in doing testing, they can find where opportunities and challenges might be. For Walmart, it's kind of a no-brainer," she said. Brinley said: "Walmart needs to look at changes in consumer expectations. They need to understand just as much as the automaker needs to understand." Ford is collaborating with various local and national companies to deliver flowers, tacos, dry cleaning and other products, said Brian Wolf, director of business development for Ford AV. "Now, it's time to explore how grocery delivery can help expand access to fresh food and other retail items for people all over the country," he said.Bloomberg contributed to this report.

The Arlene's Flowers case is back in the state Supreme Court – here's why

LGBTQ people. But they did find that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission was hostile to the baker's religion in that instance. Kristen Waggoner of Alliance Defending Freedom, who's representing Stutzman, said Washington's government has been openly hostile to her client's religious beliefs and the Colorado decision shows there's no place for that in society. "We are asking the Washington Supreme Court to affirm that in this case," she said in a statement. The American Civil Liberties Union of Washington is representing the couple Stutzman refused. In a statement, legal director Emily Chiang said that "discrimination hurts. No one should be rejected or turned away from a business open to the public simply because of who they are. We have every reason to believe the Washington State Supreme Court will reaffirm the rights of our clients - Curt Freed and Robert Ingersoll - to be full and equal members of our society." State Attorney General Bob Ferguson's office said that the Colorado opinion was a "narrow ruling that turned on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's ‘clear and impermissible hostility' toward the religious beliefs of the business owner. That was clearly not the case in Washington state." The case dates to 2013, when Ingersoll asked Stutzman to create flower arrangements for his upcoming wedding to Freed. Ingersoll was a longtime customer of the flower shop on Lee Boulevard. Stutzman refused, citing her religious beliefs about marriage. Ingersoll and Freed filed a lawsuit, and so did Ferguson. They argued that Stutzman violated the state's anti-discrimination law and the Consumer Protection Act. A Benton County Superior Court judge agreed, ruling in 2015 that Stutzman broke the law. Stutzman appealed to the state Supreme Court, which made its ruling last year.She then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ultimately sent the case back to the state.

Florist case reopens before Washington Supreme Court

Barronelle not just in her capacity as a business owner but also in her personal capacity," said Kristen Waggoner, senior vice president of Alliance Defending Freedom, the group defending both Phillips and Stutzman. "In its Masterpiece Cakeshop ruling, the Supreme Court condemned that sort of one-sided, discriminatory application of the law against people of faith," Waggoner said. "Also, in the legal briefs that the attorney general has filed in Barronelle's case, he has repeatedly and overtly demeaned her faith. He has compared her religious beliefs about marriage-which the Supreme Court said are ‘decent and honorable'-to racial discrimination," Waggoner continued. "This conflicts with the Supreme Court's recognition in Masterpiece Cakeshop that it was ‘inappropriate' for the government to draw parallels between those religious beliefs and ‘defenses of slavery'." The Washington case centers around 73-year-old Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers in Richland, Washington. In 2013, Rob Ingersoll, a long-time friend and customer of Stutzman, asked her to arrange flowers for his same-sex wedding ceremony. Stutzman knew that Ingersoll was gay, and had always been happy to create flower arrangements for birthdays and other special occasions. However, because she believes marriage to be a sign of the relationship between Christ and his Church, she told Ingersoll that she could not make a flower arrangement for a same-sex wedding. Ingersoll initially said that he understood and asked her to recommend another florist. Later, however, his partner posted a message on social media about Stutzman declining to take part in the wedding, and it went viral. Soon afterward, she was informed that she was being sued by the Washington State attorney general and the ACLU. Stutzman, who is Southern Baptist, has said that she views weddings as more than just a job. She spends months or even years getting to know the bride and groom, to understand their vision and what they want to convey. Because her wedding arrangements are such a deeply personal labor of love, she said that she felt that she could not in good conscience design flower arrangements for a same-sex wedding. In February 2017, the Washington Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling against Stutzman. She then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to hear her case. While t...
