Norfolk Southern Corporation ( NYSE: NSC) today announced a commitment of $400,000 in grants to 31 food banks located across the states served by the company. The funds and continued partnership with these food banks will directly 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 Norfolk Southern's longstanding commitment of supporting these critical community organizations.

"Every community is home to families impacted by food insecurity. Norfolk Southern is furthering its partnership with more than 30 food banks to feed and assist those in need," said Kristin Wong, director of corporate giving at Norfolk Southern.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), more than 34 million people in the country, including 9 million children, are food insecure. Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs and visit their local food banks and other food programs for extra support.
