Welcome to our Calendar of Events.

Belden Village “Back to School” Food Drive @ Belden Village Mall -- Center Concourse
Aug 7 @ 10:00 am – Aug 9 @ 5:00 pm

It’s time again for school supply lists and ads everywhere picturing adorable kids on the playground or by their lockers…
You know what that means — Back to School shopping time!

Nutritious, adequate meals are a critical part of any child’s success in school, but “food” doesn’t automatically come to mind as many begin preparation for the upcoming school year and making sure kids have everything they need. However, having breakfast, lunch, and dinner are just as important as filling a student’s backpack with pencils, erasers, or spiral notebooks. Each month, the Stark County Hunger Task Force provides a free, 3-5 day supply of groceries, along with compassion and a dash of hope, to 27,000+ of our struggling neighbors.

Will you help us fill their backpacks, lunchboxes, and kitchen cupboards with the food they need to succeed?
