YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation has donated $10,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley to support its school pantry program.
Through the pantry, students in need of assistance at nine schools in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties can pick up food to take home.
“We are grateful to Dominion Energy and the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation for their continued support,” said Second Harvest Executive Director Michael Iberis in a release. “The school pantry will ensure that students have food in the evenings and over the weekend.”
The donation is part of Dominion’s $1 million commitment to “critical community needs” to increase access to food in its service areas.
Second harvest provides food to 148 programs in the Mahoning Valley, ranging from homeless shelters to after-school programs to church pantries. In 2016, the organization distributed 10.5 million pounds of food, including three million pounds of produce.
