We live in the world's wealthiest nation and yet "most Americans (51.4 percent) will live in poverty at some point before age 65." That number simply isn't acceptable and with your help, we're going to do what we can to make a change right here in our own community.

When our world isn't in the middle of a pandemic, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW), distributes over 130,000 pounds of food each month in Broome County through its network of 30 food pantries, community meal programs, and over 30 soup kitchens.  In the middle of a pandemic, that number is multiplied several times over.

Winter isn't that far away and who knows what else 2020 has in store for our community. NOW is the time to bulk up our CHOW Warehouse. No child, no neighbor, no person should have to go hungry. Ever.

We invite you to help us bulk up the CHOW warehouse with non-perishable foods to help make sure there isn't a single person in Broome County who has to go to bed hungry this winter because they don't have anything to eat.

If you're unable to make your non-perishable food donation during those hours, blue bins will be placed outside our Food-A-Bago and you're invited to place your donations inside the bins.

Additionally, you can also make a cash or check donation. If writing a check, please make it payable to Music for the Mission. For each dollar you donate, CHOW is able to turn that into an astounding FIVE complete meals, so your monetary donation goes exceptionally far.
