Shop to End Hunger

Shop To End Hunger

Town of Chenango, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Weis Markets take a stand against hunger in Broome County.

Weis is hosting a Fight Hunger Food Drive all throughout September.

Customers are encouraged to donate shelf-stable products to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse or CHOW.

All Weis locations in Broome County are participating.

You can pick up a list of the needed items when you come into the store and then drop them off in the collection cart when you check out.

Pre-filled Fight Hunger Donation bags are also available. They cost less than $7.00 and contain pasta, sauce, fruit, veggies, tuna, cereal and soup.

"This is an extra push. People are struggling in the economy and quite honestly CHOW is stretched to its limits and this is a great opportunity for us to do a drive with our customers," said David Neal, District Manager.

Weis hopes to donate $20,000 to CHOW by the end of the program.

The Fight Hunger drive runs through October 2.

You can still donate to CHOW at Weis every month of the year.
