Traveling food pantry lands at fairgrounds Friday

FOOD DISTRIBUTION: Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley is collaborating with the Canfield Fair Board, the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio National Guard to host another Traveling Food Pantry food distribution at the fairgrounds 1 p.m. Friday.

Recipients will enter the fairgrounds through Gate 9 and exit through Gate 5. In order to partake in this zero-contact distribution, recipients’ trunks must be open and clear of all other belongings and their windows must be rolled up. Recipients are not to exit their vehicle for any reason.

Agencies are fulfilling approximately 15,000 requests for food assistance each week. For information regarding the work of the Food Bank, visit www.mahoningvalleysecond harvest.org or follow us on Facebook @SHFBMV.
