Traveling food bank has distribution at Harding

WARREN — Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley is collaborating with Warren City Schools and the Ohio National Guard to host a traveling food pantry distribution starting 11 a.m. today.

The food will be distributed in front of the football stadium. The line will form on Laird Avenue by the baseball field. The food bank and members of the Ohio National Guard are prepared to serve more than 500 families. The distribution includes meat, fresh fruit and vegetables.

In order to partake in this zero-contact distribution, your trunk must be open and clear of all other belongings and your windows must be rolled up. Recipients are not to exit their vehicle for any reason.

The traveling food pantry is a new program of Second Harvest, operating as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic to help meet the increased need.

The pantry will make its next stop 11 a.m. Monday at Maplewood High School. Additional dates and locations are being planned for the summer months.
