KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Oct. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynegy today announced a $35,000 donation to Pennsylvania food banks, still working through soaring demand and resetting logistics amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Dynegy is deeply committed to supporting the communities we serve, and right now, that means linking arms with organizations on the ground, working to end hunger," said Brad Watson, Dynegy's senior director of community affairs. "Our company understands that Pennsylvania food banks are doing what – just months ago – many would have said was impossible. Staff members and volunteers are stepping up to meet record demand head-on and handling first-time clients with grace and sensitivity."

The $35,000 donation is directly supporting food banks in meeting their most pressing needs.

  • $25,000 is going to Philabundance in Philadelphia
  • $5,000 is going to Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania
  • $5,000 is going to food pantries supported by the Montgomery Foundation

"No person should have to choose between feeding their family and paying bills," explained Philabundance CEO Loree D. Jones. "If COVID has taught the charitable food network anything, it is that partnerships and collaboration are key in the fight against hunger. Thanks to Dynegy's $25,000 donation, families across Greater Philadelphia won't have to make those tough decisions during these unprecedented times."

Dynegy's donation to food banks across Pennsylvania is part of a $225,000 commitment to food banks nationwide from Dynegy's parent company, Vistra.
