The annual Foodabago is underway.

All week long, residents are stopping by the Jim's RV of Nichols camper parked in the lot of Maines Source Food and Party Warehouse on Upper Front Street in the Town of Chenango to drop off non-perishable food in non-glass containers that will be donated to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse.

CHOW says the food challenges facing area residents this season are greater than ever with unusually long breaks from school for the winter holidays meaning families need more meals at home.

Food items that are always needed included peanut butter, canned sauce, pasta, rice, cereal and baby formula.

CHOW officials say a good guideline is to think about putting together a meal.

Donations can be dropped off anytime of the day or night at the camper or at Warner's Gas Service on Old Vestal Road, Vestal and Conklin Road, Conklin and at Tall Pines Farm Stoves and Fireplaces on route 167 in Kingsley, Pennsylvania.
