Description

Thank you for your interest in Good Samaritan Hunger Center (GSHC). GSHC was the vision of Sister Jordan Haddad and incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in May 1982. We continue to serve the needs of the hungry in Akron, OH and surrounding communities. At GSHC, hunger is not an option.

GSHC is a mobile food pantry. In 2018, GSHC provided 153,000 meals and this year, GSHC is close to distributing 50,000 pounds of fresh produce. GSHC is also providing 1,000 weekend bags of food per month to a local public elementary school starting in late October.
