Corporate donors step up to help Second Harvest Food Bank

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - While the Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley relies on donations from the average Joe, corporate donors also help fill-in the gaps of its ongoing need for support.

The owner of Valley Foods System, John Valley, Sr., says he prides himself in being able to help feed those in need in the Valley.

"I'm big in giving back. We've been so blessed in our business," Valley, Sr. said.

Instead of packaging all products to be shipped out, some of the food manufactured and distributed by Valley Foods System in Youngstown stays here.

Valley's been in the food business for more than 50 years and he believes it's vital to spread the wealth, especially when he knows many are unemployed or are having a hard time making ends meet.

Valley personally donates $1,000 each year and his business donates anywhere between $3,000 and $5,000 to Project: Feed Our Valley.

While the food bank is happy to receive high dollar donations, it also relies on the thousands of people in the Valley.

Every last box of cereal and jar of peanut butter is appreciated and can be spread a long way.
