A record number amount of food was collected during the Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s 2017 Fill the Bus Campaign. The Food Bank’s Communication’s Coordinator Maria Strinni has the numbers for us.
Maria explains how the donated food is used.
Southern Tier Wegmans stores that participated in this year’s campaign included Ithaca, Corning, Elmira, Hornell, and Johnson City. The Food Bank’s service area includes Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins counties, covering nearly 4,000 square miles.
