The PNC Charitable Trust Awards Second Harvest $6,700 Grant

The Robert H. Reakirt Foundation Equities through the PNC Charitable Trust Grant Review Committee has awarded Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley a grant for $6,700 to repair the concrete flooring in and around the truck dock area in the Food Bank’s warehouse to ensure that the Food Bank can continue to safely store and distribute over 10.4 million pounds of food to hungry families in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

“We greatly appreciate this generous gift from the Robert H. Reakirt Foundation Equities, through the PNC Charitable Trust Grant Review Committee,” said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank.  “This repair will ensure that we are able to continue our mission of feeding hungry people in the most efficient and safest way possible.”

In December 2013, Second Harvest Food Bank was audited and awarded the AIB Food Safety Certification for the handling, storage and distribution of dry goods, canned goods, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy and frozen meats. As part of our food safety certification, the Food Bank must work to address all possible hazards posed to the food.
