Stark County has a rich food history starting with our agricultural roots and continuing into the present with urban and rural farming, field-to-fork restaurants, and many other food-focused agencies. Project EAT! highlights the many existing programs working to celebrate the culture of food and make it accessible to our community, while showcasing exciting new food-related events created throughout the Stark County area in 2019.
An integral part of this initiative was building partnerships, not just with other cultural organizations, but with groups who are working to end food insecurity and connect people to fresh food options. Together, we have been able to raise awareness about current efforts to address hunger in our community, as well as indicate ways that each of us can help.
We invite to you to be part of Project EAT! by attending one or more of our events. There is something for everyone, from food-related exhibitions and programs to festivals and lectures. Please consider volunteering or donating food or money to a group or agency assisting in hunger reduction. At its core, Project EAT! is about helping all of us understand the ways that food touches our lives, and connects us to the people around us.
