Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley invites the community to join them for the 29th annual Harvest for Hunger Campaign Kickoff on Friday, February 28th at 10:00 a.m. The event will be held at the Food Bank’s warehouse located at 2805 Salt Springs Road in Youngstown.
Harvest for Hunger is a food and funds drive that takes place in March and April to help stock the Food Bank shelves for the spring and summer months when donations taper off. If you are interested in participating in the Harvest for Hunger campaign by conducting a food and/or funds drive to benefit the Food Bank, please contact Renee Fuller at 330.792.5522 ext. 112 or visit www.mahoningvalleysecondharvest.org to download a registration form.
Last year, Harvest for Hunger raised $238,186 and collected more than 36,000 pounds of food. All funds raised and food collected remains in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties to help feed our friends and neighbors.
Financial contributions may also be made at supermarket sponsor Giant Eagle and participating Sparkle Markets by tearing off a $1, $5, or $10 coupon at the register March 1-April 11. Donations are added to your bill.
