ShareCorps- GSHC - Volunteer Coordinator & Capacity Builder
Good Samaritan Hunger Center is a hunger relief agency which serves all of Summit County. Unlike other pantries, we are a mobile pantry, and we take our goods directly to the communities we serve. We conduct a Hot Meal program, a food pantry/grocery distribution program, and weekend backpack programs at several schools. Good Samaritan Hunger Center exists with the help of over 50 monthly volunteers, and we are seeking to increase this capacity as well as our capacity to serve the population of Akron/Summit County. Good Samaritan Hunger Center strives to increase access to fresh, free, and healthy food for its customers.
