Second Harvest Food Bank to Respond to Water Emergency in Toledo

As residents of the City of Toledo and surrounding areas continue to suffer from a contaminated water supply, Ohio’s food banks are pitching in to redirect safe drinking water to the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank. 

“Food banks are the key leaders in Ohio’s emergency food assistance network,” said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.  “Our most pressing and ongoing work is providing food in the event of emergencies related to job loss, illness and other hunger-causing crises. But we are also here as a network to respond in the event of emergencies like the water contamination in northwest Ohio.”

On Friday, August 8 at 11:00 a.m., Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley will ship over 1,000 gallons of bottled water to the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank.
