The Youngstown Foundation Awards Grant to Second Harvest Food Bank

The Youngstown Foundation has awarded $20,000 to the Food Bank toward the cost of constructing a protective enclosure at the warehouse delivery entrance.

As a storehouse for edible food that distributes over 35,000 pounds of food each day, Second Harvest Food Bank takes every effort to protect and ensure the integrity of product distributed. The enclosure will allow the Food Bank to achieve the nation’s highest food safety certification as established by the food industry’s top food safety specialists, AIB International. “We thank the board and staff of The Youngstown Foundation for their continued support of our efforts to feed those in need in our community,” said Mike Iberis, executive director of the Food Bank.
