Local business leaders join C&N in fighting hunger

WELLSBORO – C&N recently recognize local businesses for their support of our Giving Back, Giving Together program, supporting the food banks in the area.

Each year, thorough their Giving Back, Giving Together (GBGT) program, C&N partners with local organizations to support different causes. Recently, GBGT turned its focus to fighting hunger.

Millions of people now face financial strain as a result of the economic impacts associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are now relying on food banks for sustenance. As consumer demand has placed constraints on supply chains, fewer donations are reaching the food banks, causing uncertainty for those who depend on them.

To make matters worse, many of the volunteers who pack and distribute food are seniors who are particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. Food banks need our help now more than ever.

Recently, C&N reached out to local business leaders to join the fight. Through the support of the businesses below, the food banks in our community will be able to provide an additional 63,000 meals.
