Food Bank of the Southern Tier Virtual Food Drive

Help Feed a Child at Risk of Hunger

35% of the hungry served in our area are children at risk of going without their next meal. $25 helps provide a child three well-balanced, nourishing meals a day for 7 weeks.

Helping to Provide for the Elderly

A quarter of people turning to the community food programs are 65 and over. Your $50 contribution can help provide 1.5 month's worth of wholesome meals for an elderly couple.

Meals for the Unemployed

Over 12,000 people in this 6 county area which is served by the Food Bank of the Southern Tier are out of work. $75 can put food on the table for a person in need for over 5 months.

Families in Need

According to the 2000 Census, nearly 90,000 people in our area are living below the federal poverty line of $18,400 a year for a family of four. $100 can help nourish a four-person family for over 3 months.
