Johnstown restaurant gives back to essential workers, deliver hundreds of meals

Balance Restaurant in Johnstown organized a food distribution to give nearly 400 meals to community organizations, as a way to say thank you. Owner, Amanda Artim named it “Give Back, Give Thanks Meals.”

“We came up with this idea to do take out and we were allowing people to pick from organizations they would like for us to deliver to or they could also purchase and then come pick up and take to families they know are in need,” said Artim.

With donations from the community and the countless volunteer hours from Artim’s staff, Balance was able to deliver 400 meals to organizations like the Johnstown Fire Department, Johnstown Police Department, Conemaugh Hospital, The Salvation Army and St. Vincent De Paul’s Family Kitchen.
