Donations to Stark County Hunger Task force Beat Hunger Drive matched in February

Matching funds double donations in February to help Stark County Hunger Task Force “Beat Hunger” in Stark County.

A generous donor will match all donations up to $6,000, which means every dollar donated allows us to provide up to 14 pounds of food through our network of more than 30 pantries throughout the county.

“Hearts stand out as a symbol of the month, and we ask you to show a generous heart by maximizing your gift with this matching offer. Help reach out a hand to our many neighbors struggling to put food on the table,” said Ralph Norton, SCHTF interim executive director.

“One in six individuals in this county live in food insecure households, and alarmingly, that includes nearly one of every four children,” Norton said. “Give today to double the impact of your donation.”
