ShareCorps -StarkFresh- Food Justice Coordinator
StarkFresh is a small, but mighty 501(c)3 nonprofit team of staff and volunteers working together to provide realistic pathways out of poverty in Stark County, Ohio. We tackle the root causes of hunger by providing affordable retail food options and entrepreneurship programing to the underserved in our community. Being a small organization with several large-scale programs & a limited paid staff, we are quite adept at utilizing partnerships & our volunteer network to keep the programs running smoothly. We currently operate several programs that advance our mission and reduce or remove barriers to break the cycle of poverty and provide fresh, nutritious food in chronically underserved neighborhoods throughout the County. These programs include an Urban Training Farm, Free Seed Library network, Food Justice Campus which houses the Food Incubation Center, a Shared Commercial Kitchen Space, a Shared Office Space, Nonprofit Neighborhood Grocery Store, and the Mobile Grocery Market.
