Project: Feed Our Valley collects food and funds to feed hungry people in the Mahoning Valley

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Project: Feed Our Valley raised $71,599.00 and collected over 74,000 pounds of food to feed hungry families in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties!

In addition to raising funds and food during November and December, Project: Feed Our Valley also creates unprecedented awareness about the growing number of hungry people in our community.

In just five years, Project: Feed Our Valley has collected $289,090 and 329,943 pounds of food and brought many new friends and supporters to help in the fight against hunger in our community.

The Project: Feed Our Valley campaign is growing each year, and the impact it has had on the Food Bank is incredible," said Michael Iberis, executive director, Second Harvest Food Bank. "We are humbled by the tremendous community support garnered through this campaign, including the continued support of Sparkle Markets, Chevy All Stars, The Cafaro Foundation and the Eastwood Mall. Every dollar raised and every can of food collected makes a huge difference when more than 13,000 people each week in the Mahoning valley rely on our services. We simply cannot thank 21 WFMJ and the generous people of this Valley enough for what they do," Iberis said.

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