Postal Workers Help CHOW Fight Hunger

WNBF News/ Roger Neel Photo

Postal carriers around the area teamed up to collect food for CHOW earlier this month and it has turned into a smashing success.  According to CHOW Director Mike Leahey the drive collected 31,139 pounds of food.

Postal carriers picked up non-perishable food items left for them by area residents when they went on their mail delivery routes.  Some were single items and some were left in bags or boxes.

Food items collected are used by CHOW (Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse) to help feed the hungry in our area.  CHOW provides food for hundreds of thousands of meals for needy people in our community each year and according to Leahey the need continues to increase.

CHOW helps operate 30 food pantries and an additional 30 soup kitchens in our area and in an average month distributes 130,000 of food to needy area residents. CHOW is part of the Broome County Council of Churches and can be reached by calling (607) 724-9130.
