PUT HUNGER IN PARK

 

Save the Date for the 2018 Put Hunger in Park Food Fest!   

Meals on Wheels of Stark & Wayne Counties cordially invites you to Put Hunger in Park on Thursday, September 13, 2018. The fundraiser will be held at Hoover Park in North Canton from 5PM-9PM. Put Hunger in Park will include live entertainment, activities for all ages, beer and food trucks and, most importantly, plenty of Meals on Wheels.
 
The 2017 food fest was an overwhelming success, and – with your help – our agency is hoping to outdo itself again in 2018. With nearly 2,000 in attendance, Meals on Wheels was able to share its mission, recognize supporters, and create many new advocates in the community. Together we raised more than $86,000, and every dollar went directly towards meal costs for nutritionally at-risk clients. This year, our goal is even greater as we look to build even more momentum in 2018. We are looking to you with proven results and growing community excitement as we ask for your support of our groundbreaking fundraiser.
 
Meals on Wheels’ mission is to provide nutrition for better health, happiness, and independence by serving 1,500 meals a day to individuals in need in Stark and Wayne Counties. To accomplish this, we depend on the help of a passionate staff, dedicated volunteers, and generous supporters like yourself. This fundraiser is a perfect fit with our mission as it focuses on the positive impact good food and great people can make on our community. We invite you to strengthen this impact by joining Put Hunger in Park as a financial sponsor or an Adopt-a-Route partner.
 
To become an official sponsor or partner, contact Melissa Coultas, marketing director, at 330-832-7220 ext. 111 or coultas@mow-starkwayne.org.

We cannot wait to see you on September 13th as we come together with our community to celebrate Meals on Wheels, acknowledge all those who continue to make our services possible, and Put Hunger in Park!
