Winter is a hard time for a lot of people in a year when we're not also living through inflation and so you can imagine the struggles that the winter of 2022 will bring to many of our neighbors.

CHOW understands the need for food, for hope, and for a taste of normalcy and so they'll be providing provide holiday meal boxes for at least 225 families in Broome County.

The holiday meal boxes will feed a family of four to six and will be packed with traditional holiday foods as well as locally grown and/or produced foods. While the selected families will receive the holiday meal box for free, the boxes themselves come with a cost to put together and that cost is $50 per box.

If you have your footing and haven't been hit as hard financially as some of our neighbors have been, maybe you'll consider sponsoring a holiday meal box?

CHOW hopes to have enough funds raised by December 10 to put the boxes together and wouldn't be incredible if they were to receive more than the $11,250 needed to put the 225 holiday meal boxes together? Wouldn't it be incredible if they were able to raise enough to double or even triple the number boxed to bless struggling families?

If you, your business, or your group would like to donate toward CHOW’s Holiday Meal Box initiative, you can make an online donation here.
