Second Harvest Food Bank announced today a $3,000 grant from The Darden Foundation to assist in their efforts of providing help to people facing hunger. The generous grant will allow Second Harvest to provide more food to people in need in the Mahoning Valley.
“One in 6 people struggle with hunger in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties including 1 in 4 children,” said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank. “Hunger does not discriminate and there are many children, families and seniors who turn to our food bank for help. The Darden Foundation’s donation will go a long way for the people in our community.”
The Darden Foundation is committed to supporting families facing food insecurity in communities across the United States. Their commitment to help is demonstrated through their partnership with Feeding America and their network of 200 food banks across the nation. Feeding America has worked alongside The Darden Foundation for six years in the fight to end hunger. Thanks to their ongoing support, the Feeding America network has been able to help provide even more nutritious meals to families in need.
