  • Tops Friendly Markets – January 27 – February 16
  • Wegmans – January 27 – March 2

“We are thankful for great corporate partners like Wegmans and Tops Friendly Markets.  Their support of our year-round hunger relief efforts, especially through the Check Out Hunger campaign, means that we are able to continue to distribute nutritious food and provide nutrition education in our 11-county service area,” said Thomas Slater, executive director at the Food Bank of Central New York.
