Some 1,000 people are monthly recipients at Joe Lordi’s Youngstown Community Food Bank, a friendly place where hungry local residents are treated with respect. Joe knows from experience-he was on the receiving end, himself, years ago, when his successful grocery business took a downturn.
There’s little bureaucracy and few questions, asked. Joe has helped area churches, veterans’ centers, senior living residences and other organizations in need, as well. His generosity enabled us to deliver two trailers of food to Appalachia this past year.
Our funds help underwrite minimal overhead-utilities, insurance and car licensing fees.
