Feeding Our Families with NBC 4 NY, Telemundo 47, and Stop & Shop

When: April 8, 2017

Coming together to feed local families, replenish non-perishable supplies and recruit new volunteers to sustain important anti-hunger efforts, Food Bank joins NBC 4 New York, Telemundo 47, and Stop & Shop to announce Feeding Our Families / Alimentando a Nuestras Familias, a massive tri-state food and volunteer drive.

Donations can be made at 199 Stop & Shop locations throughout the tri-state area, including 25 locations in the New York City area.  Volunteers from Food Bank For New York City will collect and pack all donated items to distribute to local NYC families.

“Fighting hunger is very important to WNBC. Food banks often face their greatest need between January and August, and regularly depend on volunteers to support their operations. Our April 8 Feeding our Families food and volunteer drive will help local food banks secure these important resources, which will make a difference for families across the Tri-State area,” said Eric Lerner, President and General Manager of NBC 4 New York.

NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 will offer live reports and broadcast cut-ins from several Stop & Shop locations on April 8, including on NBC 4 New York’s Weekend Today in New York and News 4 New York, as well as on Telemundo 47’s Noticiero 47 Telemundo. News personalities will also visit many Stop & Shop collection locations on April 8 to support on-site efforts.

 “We see it time and time again – local families forced to choose between putting food on the table or keeping a roof over their head. The impact of this choice is particularly felt amongst our children, who are often forced to go to bed hungry. This is why Telemundo 47’s Alimentando a Nuestras food and volunteer drive is so important – and why we encourage our viewers to come out on April 8 and join us as we help our friends and neighbors in need,” said Cristina Schwarz, President and General Manager of Telemundo 47.
