Weis Markets launched its Fight Hunger Food Drive in Broome County. The program, which runs through Oct. 2, will allow customers to donate shelf-stable products and make monetary contributions to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse.

The program will also run in Weis Markets stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, West Virginia and Elmira.

Customers can donate $3, $5 and $10 vouchers, which can be purchased at any cash register. All proceeds will be given to area food banks in the form of gift card donations so they can fill in any gaps in their food supplies. Pre-filled Fight Hunger donation bags will also be available, containing pasta, sauce, fruit, vegetables, tuna, cereal and soup, for less than $7.

After customers purchase the foods they would like to donate, they can place the items in a specially-marked collection cart near checkout. Donors will be invited to place a “Fight Hunger” sticker on each store’s front window poster.

For more information on the Fight Hunger Food Donation Program, visit or call Weis Markets Customer Service at (866) 999-WEIS.
