Norfolk Southern donates funds to food banks


Norfolk Southern Railway yesterday announced $400,000 in grants awarded to 31 food banks located across the states it serves.

The funds will support local efforts to combat food insecurity, as well as other assistance initiatives supporting children, families and senior citizens. This latest set of grants builds on NS’s longstanding commitment of giving to these critical community organizations, NS officials said in a press release.

"Food insecurity impacts every community in our country and disproportionately children and senior citizens. Our role as a company is to move the goods that power the economy, and while a recovery is underway, 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," said LaSandra Boykin, NS director of corporate giving.

The complete list of food banks that received grants can be found on the donations can be found on the NS website.
