A Record 10.6 Million Pounds of Food Distributed in 2017

Second Harvest Food Bank distributed a record 10.6 million pounds of food last year to those in need in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties in 2017.

“We thank the many financial and food donors, individuals, volunteers, foundations, corporations, schools and organizations that were instrumental in helping us distribute more than 40,000 pounds of food each day from our warehouse,” said Mike Iberis, executive director. “Community support is vital to our work and we are extremely grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support we receive,” said Iberis.

“In addition to providing food through 148 member agencies, mobile pantries and backpack programs, we now have 11 school pantries operating in 10 school districts allowing children to take food home each day and several school districts delivering food to students in need. We also support a senior program providing food to the poorest of the poor elderly.”

“While we are pleased to achieve a milestone in distribution, we are saddened that so many families, seniors and children have to rely on pantries and soup kitchens for the food they need,” said Iberis. “But we will continue to work to find the resources to fill the need as long as it exists.”
