$20,000 grant to help build protective enclosure for Food Bank deliveries

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

The enclosure will help the Food Bank earn 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.

Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley distributes food to 153 hunger relief organizations in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties. They include church pantries, homeless shelters and soup kitchens, shelters for battered women and after-school programs.
