Project: Feed Our Valley is starting 6th year
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Super Kmart in the Eastwood Mall complex, 21 WFMJ Today on-air personalities are collecting food for the sixth annual Feed Our Valley campaign. The food drive will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.
Each item collected will be matched with a $1 donation from The Cafaro Foundation up to $10,000.

Since its inception six years ago, Project: Feed Our Valley has collected $289,090 and 329,943 pounds of food to help feed hungry people in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties. For information on Project: Feed Our Valley, visit www.wfmj.com.
