We here at Stark County Hunger Task Force are dedicated to fighting hunger through the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact our services are needed now more than ever. Help us continue to fight hunger by becoming a volunteer. We have opportunities available five days a week to join our team of Hunger Fighters. Here are a few of areas where volunteers are most needed:

Our Emergency Pantry

Volunteer opportunities Monday-Friday with flexible shifts between 9am-3pm. Volunteer responsibilities may include assisting clients with menus, packing carts, and assisting clients to their vehicles. Contact Steve at steve@starkhunger.org for more info.

Our Senior Box Program

Help some of our most vulnerable citizens, our seniors. Volunteers will assist with sign in and loading boxes in client’s vehicles. Each box weighs approximately 30 pounds. Shifts are available the first Wednesday and Thursday of each month between 9:30am-2:30pm. Contact Stephanie at stephanie@starkhunger.org for more info.

Our Backpack for Kids Program

We are currently providing close to 900 Backpacks a week to local children through our Backpack for Kids program. We pack these bag loaded with weekend meals each Wednesday from 10am-2pm. Contact Stephanie at stephanie@starkhunger.org.
