The Stark County Hunger Task Force fights hunger in our community by providing financial, logistic, strategic, and food support to our network of local emergency food pantries.
We believe our work does more than just provide free groceries to those in need: we ease anxiety, inspire hope, and promote wellness. By alleviating hunger in Stark County, we are building a stronger community.
Compassion: In any community, a number of individuals will experience a crisis during their lifetimes, in which they are unable to provide adequate food for themselves and their families. We strive to satisfy this basic need with a caring hand, treating everyone with dignity and respect.
Hope: When a visitor comes to us for a hand up, we meet them with a bag… a bag full of groceries, of course, but also with a small dash of hope that things will be better soon.
Generosity: It is only through the generosity of our friends and neighbors that we are able to provide free groceries to the food insecure in Stark County.
Zeal: Our passion and commitment to Stark County drive our mission. Through hard work and raised awareness, we will alleviate hunger in our community.
