Food Drives

The Stark County Hunger Task Force is always looking for events and locations to hold a food collection, and those interested in organizing them. Food drives are essential to our mission, and all your donations are appreciated by our visitors.

Whether it be a county-wide event, an office collecting donations from employees and patrons, or anywhere you have a vision for a food drive, all are welcome to contact us. Consider asking your holiday guests to bring a box of cereal, or for those at your child’s birthday party to come with a jar of peanut butter. Every bit truly matters in the life of a hungry child, adult, or senior.

We know that we might be able to buy more food on the dollar from the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank, but brand name items standard to your cupboard are often a rare find on a food pantry shelf. Your donations from food drives can help provide variety to our visitors, and keep our shelves stocked.

Host a food drive today, and ask for our Top 5 Most Needed Items:

  1. Peanut Butter
  2. Cereal
  3. Canned meats (ie. tuna, chicken)
  4. Canned fruit
  5. Canned vegetables
