Project: Feed Our Valley - Mission Statement

Hunger in our Valley is on the rise. And instead of just reporting on the problem, 21 News is doing something to help.

Project: Feed Our Valley is an effort to educate people about hunger in our community. It's also a "call to action" to raise vital donations of food and money in order to feed our hungry neighbors.

The beneficiary of this 21 News project is Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley; a local organization which feeds more than 10,000 needy people each week in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties.

Most people think that hunger is an inner-city problem. But poverty is also on the rise in the suburbs and in rural areas of our community. 21 News hopes to dispel myths about hunger and provide opportunities for viewers to help.

Project: Feed Our Valley promises to be a true community effort with events throughout the year to encouraging local businesses and individuals to join the fight against hunger.
