Clearfield Charitable Foundation distributes funds for food banks
CLEARFIELD — Early this year, the Clearfield County Charitable Founda-tion Board of Directors approved a distribution of $3,900 in funding to area food banks.
Funding was provided to food pantries managed by Central Pennsylvania Community Action in the communities of Clearfield, Curwensville, Philipsburg, Burnside/Mahaffey, Houtzdale, Osceola Mills, Karthaus, West Branch/
Allport and two DuBois locations — the DuBois Ministerium Food Pantry and emergency needs at the DuBois Salvation Army.
Funding was also provided to the Living Bread Ministries, which operates a location in the East End section of Clearfield, and the Clearfield Salvation Army for their food bank.
For the 2020 distribution, additional funding for the Philipsburg Food Pantry, managed by Community Action, was added to the distribution list by the CCCF Board of Directors. CCCF Executive Director Mark B. McCracken joined with Community Action Director of Operations and Finance Michelle Stiner to visit several food pantry locations.
