Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley invites residents of the Mahoning Valley to an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 2 at its warehouse at 2805 Salt Springs Road, Youngstown. Food Bank board of directors and staff welcome the opportunity to thank and congratulate those who made the Mahoning Valley No. 1 in the Walmart Foundation's Fighting Hunger Together Facebook challenge. Refreshments and a tour of the Food Bank will be available.
"The support of this community brought $1 million to the Mahoning Valley through the Fighting Hunger Together campaign," said Mike Iberis, executive director of the Food Bank. "The Food Bank was awarded a grant in the amount of $715,000 that will be used to build capacity to increase the number of people served and amount of food distributed. We are grateful to those who voted every day to win this challenge for the Mahoning Valley."
