AllOne Foundation has expedited $1,000,000 in grant support to three major food banks serving all 13 counties in its service geography. Leaders from the Weinberg/CEO Northeastern Food Bank, Central PA Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank were on hand to receive the support. “The COVID-19 crisis has forced many thousands of our neighbors to seek assistance in feeding themselves and their families,” said John P. Moses, Esq., Board Chairman. “AllOne Foundation has prioritized supporting our charitable food system by expediting significant resources to meet these most pressing of needs in every corner of the 13 counties we serve,” Moses stated.
“At a time when our members are serving more people in need than ever before, we are incredibly grateful for the support of AllOne Foundation,” said Gene Brady, Executive Director of the Weinberg/CEO Northeastern Food Bank. “My colleagues and I thank AllOne Foundation for their leadership in so generously donating the resources that will help us continue to meet the critical needs,” Brady stated.
The grant will support hundreds of food banks, food pantries and school-based food distributions in Bradford, Carbon, Clinton, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Monroe, Pike, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Tioga, Wayne and Wyoming counties.
