We all are still affected by the coronavirus pandemic in one way or another. Many of our neighbors had NO idea last year at this time, they would be in this situation. They are experiencing food insecurity and we want to help them. There are several ways that you can be a part of the solution.

We want to thank everyone who participated in our Food-A-Bago food drive to benefit Broome County CHOW. Your response was outstanding and we can't wait to let everyone know how we did.

If you are looking for another way to help the hungry in the Southern Tier, here is something else you can do to make a difference. You can help the Foodbank of the Southern Tier with their next emergency food distribution.

The Conklin Mobile Food Pantry is looking for volunteers at their Drive-Thru Mobile Food Pantry at the Maine Community Center located at 942 Conklin Road in Conklin. It's happening on Monday, November 16th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

It includes some physical labor like packing food into bags, lifting bags, and carrying food. You are asked to wear comfortable clothes, a mask, and close-toed shoes.

There are many friendly faces that would love to meet you and you can go here to sign up as a volunteer. It's just another way to make a difference for others that will make a difference in your life.
