Financial Donations

For every $1 given, the Food Bank distributes $11 worth of food, which is equivalent to 6 meals, to hungry people through church pantries, homeless shelters and soup kitchens, shelters for battered women and after school programs in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.  Your financial support provides fresh produce to seniors and helps working poor families put food on their tables.
