Rural Action’s Donation Station Tuscarawas County officially wrapped up its second market season on Nov. 21. With the help of the community, it was able to raise $1,520.43. This resulted in 1,207 pounds of produce being distributed to five food pantries and hot-meal providers throughout Tuscarawas County.

If you or someone you know are passionate about food access in Tuscarawas County, consider participating in a year of service. Rural Action Northern Programs is currently looking for a community member to serve as an AmeriCorps member for the Eastern Ohio Sustainable Agriculture Office. Help make a difference in the county by continuing to operate and grow Donation Station Tuscarawas County.
