“Food insecurity impacts every community in our country and disproportionately children and senior citizens,” NS Director of Corporate Giving LaSandra Boykin said. “Our role as a company is to move the goods that power the economy, and while a recovery is under way, many are still feeling the economic impact of the pandemic. Norfolk Southern is proud to partner with these food banks as a way to help make a difference by feeding and assisting those in need.”

“We are so thankful to our long-time partner, Norfolk Southern, for this generous gift that will provide over 120,000 healthy meals for Central Pennsylvanians in need,” Central Pennsylvania Food Bank Executive Director Joe Arthur said. “We also thank them for their investment in our local communities as one of our major employers in the Susquehanna Valley.”

“We are extremely grateful for Norfolk Southern’s investment in Second Harvest’s food bank programs, which will be able to provide fresh and healthy food options to our region’s seniors, children, families and veterans,” said Rhonda Chafin, Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee.
