Tough Summer Ahead For CHOW
School's out next month for Southern Tier students, and that signals the start of a local food pantry's busiest season.
Shelves are barer than usual at Broome County's Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, or CHOW.
"We're seeing more demand. We opened up more pantries to help handle it, and we need more food coming in. Food's coming in at about the same clip, so we need to kind of step it up a little bit," said CHOW Director, Ed Blaine.
You can donate food to the pantry by dropping non-perishable items in CHOW barrels at Weis Markets and at CHOW's Warehouse at 3 Otseningo St.
