Food Bank of Central New York Hosting Virtual Food Drive
Support the hunger-relief mission of Food Bank of Central New York through our Virtual Food Drive this November.
Your donation makes an immediate difference in the fight against hunger in central and northern New York.
Throughout this past year, The Food Bank of Central New York partner agencies in Oneida County distributed over 3,251,070 pounds of nutritious food from the Food Bank, including 52,343 pounds of disaster response meals, to families and individuals in need through 48 different partner agencies.
Herkimer County also distributed 756,644 pounds of nutritious food from the Food Bank, including 30,400 pounds of disaster response meals, to families & individuals through 13 different partner agencies.
A gift made through the virtual food drive will provide more food than through a traditional drive, doubling or even tripling the amount of items your dollar can purchase at a regular grocery store. Every dollar raised through this virtual food drive will be used to buy nutritious food for our neighbors in need. Just $1.00 donated can help provide 3 meals to a family struggling to make ends meet. Support our mission today, together we can end hunger!
