CHOW Food Pantry

Our church houses one of 30 food pantries that make up The Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW). For a referral to our food pantry, or one of the 30 CHOW pantries in Broome County, call First Call For Help by dialing 2-1-1 from a landline phone or call 1-800-901-2180.

You may access a CHOW pantry 12 times a year with 4 weeks between each referral.

You can make a difference for CHOW by…

Making a food donation – Buy non-perishable food when you do your regular grocery shopping and put it in one of the CHOW Barrels in any WEIS Market.

Round up for CHOW – When shopping at one of the local WEIS markets, ask the cashier to round up to the nearest dollar for CHOW. This money goes into an account so CHOW can give out coupons for perishable items like milk and bread.

Volunteer – At our East Side Congregational UCC CHOW pantry! Call 607-722-1017 for more information.
