Second Harvest Food Bank has received a $3,000 grant from The Darden Foundation to help provide hunger-relief to Mahoning Valley families during this increased time of need. Each week, the Food Bank and its network of member agencies are currently filling more than 20,000 requests for emergency food assistance in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.
“We greatly appreciate the continued support of The Darden Foundation,” said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank. “This generous gift will enable the Food Bank to provide 18,000 meals to families in need across the Mahoning Valley,” Iberis added.
