WDTN-TV kicks off its 38th annual Food for Friends campaign Wednesday, November 13th and it will run through Tuesday, December 24th, with corporate partner Kroger.
New this year, monetary donations can be made to the Food for Friends campaign by adding $5 $10 or $25 to your bill at checkout.
“WDTN is committed to fighting hunger and supporting families in need in the Miami Valley,” said Joe Abouzeid, WDTN-TV Vice President & General Manager. “Our longstanding campaign is thanks to the generous support of generations of families who’ve placed items in our barrels throughout the years.”
Since 1982, the Food for Friends campaign has collected and distributed over 13 million food items to families in need through The Foodbank of Dayton and other food pantries throughout the Miami Valley.
Food for Friends barrels will be in Kroger stores throughout Montgomery, Clark, Clinton, Miami, Darke and Greene counties.
