Marketing & Community Engagement
Flash’s Food Pantry has become a vital resource for many students, faculty and staff on our campus.
For this reason, Kent State Stark is asking that the campus generously support the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank’s Harvest for Hunger Campaign.
Our partnership with the foodbank was formed two years ago and has allowed Flash’s Food Pantry to stretch its dollars further. In 2017, the foodbank directly contributed to our campus pantry, facilitating the purchase of more than $6,000 worth of groceries for less than $2,000. Those groceries helped put food on the tables of more than 1,000 students last year. This remarkable partnership is key in helping us fight food insecurity right here on our campus.
