SCHTF Top5 (1)The Stark County Hunger Taskforce’s  website poses the question: “Will you help fight hunger at home this summer?” The statistics are staggering: 1 in 4 children, 1 in 6 residents, and 10% of the senior population in Stark County is hungry.

This summer, SMHA is proud to be a part of the Stark County Hunger Taskforce’s summer campaign “Hunger at Home”. Beginning Monday, June 29th a donation drop off box will be available in the Planning and Development and Community Services Department at the SMHA Central Offices.

The top 5 needed items are: canned meats, peanut butter, soup, canned fruit and vegetables, and pasta although, any non-perishable item donated will be appreciated.

With hunger affecting 27,000 Stark County residents per month, it is vital that we help fight hunger at home this summer and in the future. Join us in supporting Stark County Hunger Taskforce’s efforts to bring food to so many in need.
