We live in the world's wealthiest nation and yet a staggering 49 million Americans, including 15.9 million children struggle to put food on the table every single day. We're on a mission to confront hunger right here in Broome County, but we can't do it without your help.

The Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW), distributes over 130,000 pounds of food each month in Broome County through its network of 30 food pantries, community meal programs, and over 30 soup kitchens. While 130,000 pounds of food might sound like a lot, it's really not.

Winter is on the way and schools are preparing to go on Christmas break. This means many local kids will miss out on nutritious meals provided by their school while it's in session, and these kids will face the very real problem of not being able to have three healthy meals a day. No child, no neighbor, no person should have to go hungry. Ever.

We invite you to help us bulk up the CHOW warehouse with non-perishable foods to help make sure not a single person Broome County has to go to bed hungry this winter because they don't have anything to eat.
