How Our Community Helps

The Geauga Hunger Task Force began in 1977 to serve the emergency food needs of Geauga County. People came together to create an organization that would raise funds to supplement the local food pantries in the county. Back then, pantries were serving a handful of clients each day. Today, the seven independent pantries in Geauga County served over 450,000 meals in 2016. This is a testament to the generosity and neighborliness of every pantry captain, volunteer, and donor.

Just think...

  • That's 450,000 times that a child, teenager, adult, and senior did not have to worry about going hungry.
  • That's 450,000 times that an individual, family, and community could give thanks.
  • That's 450,000 times that we have stood together to take care of our friends, family, and neighbors.

It's amazing work. And it's all done because of your generosity and compassion. Thank you.
