Roots and Wings team up with Commerce Chenango for county-wide food drive

NORWICH – In recognition of Hunger Action Month, Roots and Wings and Commerce Chenango are jointly working to promote a county-wide food drive to benefit food pantries and help residents in these tough economic times.



The food drive, which officially got underway on Patriot’s Day earlier this week, will be open to donations until Sept. 28. Collection sites are established at NBT branches around the county and in Norwich at the Eaton Center and One City Plaza. Commerce Chenango and Catholic Charities Roots and Wings will collect and disburse food items to 18 different food pantries.

Catholic Charities Director of Community Outreach Gary Quarella said the drive is a worth while cause and a chance to extend a helping hand when food distribution sites need it most.
