Food Bank Service Area

Our service area includes Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins counties, covering nearly 4,000 square miles. Our partnership with member agencies across our service area is crucial to our mission as they ensure the food we acquire and distribute gets to the people who need it most.

In 2016, the Food Bank distributed 11,553,304 pounds of food and grocery items through three main channels:

  1. More than 160 partner agencies, including food pantries, meal programs, shelters, after-school programs, and senior programs
  2. Food Bank direct-service programs: BackPack, Mobile Food Pantry, and Kids Farmers Market
  3. A partnership with CHOW in Broome County*  

* Working in Partnership to Meet the Need
CHOW and the Food Bank of the Southern Tier work in partnership to leverage national, regional, and local resources to end hunger in Broome County. CHOW operates as its own entity, receiving food from the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and relying on food and monetary donations from local residents, organizations and companies to fulfill our collective mission of ending hunger for all.
