ShareCorps -StarkFresh- Food Justice Coordinator
StarkFresh is a small, but mighty 501(c)3 nonprofit located in Canton, Ohio & servicing Stark County, Ohio. Our mission is tackling the cause of hunger by creating realistic pathways out of poverty. Although we've been around since 1983, we didn't start focusing on food insecurity until 2014. 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. All our programming is designed to 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, 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. The VISTA will take on the role of Food Justice Campus Development Coordinator and be focusing on tackling the programmatic increase in efficiencies to better, more effectively serve the community by allowing us to stretch limited resources as much as possible.
