Who We Are

The Geauga County Hunger Task Force (GHTF) is a volunteer-driven organization whose mission is to ensure that no resident of Geauga County goes hungry. It financially supports seven independent food pantries throughout Geauga county to help families in need. The Geauga County Hunger Task Force is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and donations are tax-deductible according to applicable law. The GHTF is supported with food and monetary donations from generous residents, churches, schools, businesses, Geauga County, and community organizations. United Way Services of Geauga County provides administrative support.

Anyone in need of food assistance is encouraged to call the United Way's 2-1-1 Help Center 24 hours a day/7 days a week for pantry locations and hours. Families are provided with 10 days of nutritious food. There is no restriction as to age, employment status, or family size.
