Harvest for Hunger is a food and funds drive that takes place in March and April to help stock the Food Bank shelves for the spring and summer months when donations taper off.
You can help feed hungry families by making a financial contribution or collecting and donating food. All food collected and funds raised in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties remain in our community to feed our friends and neighbors.
