Second Harvest donates food to furloughed employees

Local News

As the partial government shutdown continues, the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania is trying to help federal employees who are without pay. 

Some government employees have now missed two paychecks.  This is all over a stalemate between President Donald Trump and Democrats over funding for a border wall during what is now the longest shutdown in American history.

We visit the Food Bank tonight as they hand out free food to some of those workers who are without pay.
