Community Organizer-Stark Co Hunger Task Force
Stark County Hunger Task Force fights hunger in Stark County through a network of 35 pantries, an onsite pantry, and a Backpack for Kids program. Our organization supports pantries by providing financial and logistical support. Our pantries can utilize our trucks for food pick, we cover the cost of fuel and insurance. Our pantry network is serving on average 34,000 Stark County residents a week. Our Backpack for Kids program is a weekend meal program that serves 1,400 children in 16 local schools. Our Backpacks are also distributed at several Stark Library locations and on the bookmobile. Our programs are spearheaded by a SCHTF staff member and the day-to-day operations are powered by volunteers.
