CHOW, partners hoping to fill the Food-A-Bago

Local organizations are coming together to help families in need this holiday season.

The Food-A-Bago is parked at Weis on Upper Front Street in the town of Chenango.

Community members are encouraged to collect non-perishable foods to fill up the RV with food.

The donations will help feed families in Broome County, through the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, or CHOW.

“Last year this event helped us provide over six-thousand meals, and this year our shelves are really bare. I’ve been here four years, and I have not seen so little food in our warehouse. So we’re really hoping that people come out, they’ll donate, our goal is to raise ten thousand pounds of food this year,” said CHOW Director Michael Leahey.

The Food-A-Bago will be parked outside the grocery store through Monday, November 7.
