Broome Bounty, a division of CHOW®, is Broome County’s only Food Recovery Program. Broome Bounty collects food that would otherwise be thrown away. Broome Bounty gets food from restaurants such as the Olive Garden and Red Lobster, from food suppliers like Maines Paper & Food and Willow Run Foods, schools, the area’s two major truck stops and a national food recovery program. This food is distributed to local soup kitchens and community meal programs.
To become a recipient of Broome Bounty food, the agency must be a 501(c)3 not-for-profit agency. The agency must provide prepared foods free of charge from a NYS Health Department certified kitchen.
