SUNY Morrisville students lead food drive for Roots and Wings

NORWICH – In what’s become an annual pre Thanksgiving tradition for the Human Services Organization (HSO) at the SUNY Morrisville Norwich campus, students in HSO took to the streets of Norwich last week for a city-wide food drive to help stock shelves of the Chenango County Roots and Wings food pantry.



Using plastic bags donated by the Sherburne Big M and New York Pizzeria in New Berlin, students of HSO collected a total 1,235 pounds of food from city residents for Roots and Wings, an emergency services and self-sufficiency program that provides clothing, food and household goods to individuals and families in need. On Nov. 8, students hung more than 1,000 bags from the front doors of residences throughout the city, attached with a note bidding non-perishable foods and other necessities to help those who need help most. On Nov. 10, HSO hit the streets once again, this time to collect full bags setting at the threshold of peoples’ homes.
