All food and funds donated benefit hunger relieft efforts in Broome County by:


The Food Bank of the Southern Tier and CHOW work in partnership to leverage national, regional, and local resources to end hunger in our community. The canned food used in each structure will be distributed through CHOW to emergency food programs throughout Broome County including food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community meal programs. The funds raised will support both agencies’ hunger-relief efforts including the Food Bank’s BackPack Program™. Winners of Canstruction® of the Southern Tier will be nominated for the chance to compete on a national level.
