YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The 25th annual Taste of the Valley to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank was held at Stambaugh Auditorium Sunday night.

Over 500 guests made up the sold-out crowd, enjoying food and entertainment from vendors across the Valley.

Since 1992, Taste of the Valley has generated over $700,000, which has enabled the Food Bank to provide 3.4 million meals to hungry families in Columbiana, Mahoning, and Trumbull counties.

“By our best calculations, the money we’ve raised is going to provide over 250,000 thousand meals for hungry people in the Mahoning Valley,” said Mike Iberis, the executive director of Second Harvest Food Bank.
