Second Harvest food truck collects 27,000 pounds of food/drink for Florence relief efforts

Local News

Erie continues to show its generosity in helping victims of Hurricane Florence. 

Workers at the Second Harvest Food Bank loaded more than 27,000 pounds of food and drinks onto a truck.  That truck is headed to a food bank in Columbia, South Carolina.  It’s part of a program shared by 200 food banks across the country to help each other in an emergency. 

Beth Keil, of the Second Harvest Food Bank, tells us, “We just think about what we can do what we need to help because, if we were in the same situation, we would have to ask those food banks to provide food for people here in Erie in our service area that would need help”.

So far, only one truck is headed down, but the food bank will consider any additional requests.
