The board members of the Stark County Hunger Task Force believe that in any community a number of individuals will experience a crisis during their lifetime in which they are unable to provide adequate food for themselves and their families. It is our goal to depend on the generosity of our neighbors for assistance to satisfy that basic need.
Since 1981, the Stark County Hunger Task Force has taken a positive role in battling the hunger needs of the community of Stark County. There are currently over two dozen pantries of which we support -- who feed a total of 15,000 people every month.
We also sponsor four Senior Pantries, four Backpacks for Kids programs, a Diabetic Pantry, and a Community Campus Pantry.
