Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation Awards $10,000 for School Pantry

Dominion Energy and the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation awarded $10,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley to support the School Pantry program.  This grant is part of Dominion’s $1 million commitment to “critical community needs” that specifically support increasing food securities.

The School Pantries are located on school grounds and intended to provide a more readily accessible source of food assistance to students at risk of going without food in the evening and over the weekend. The School Pantry program gives students access to food Monday through Friday and the ability to choose the foods that best meet their needs at home.  The Food Bank is currently operating nine School Pantry programs in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

“We are grateful to Dominion Energy and the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation for their continued support,” said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank.  “The School Pantry will ensure that students have food in the evenings and over the weekend.”
