Officials from Tops Friendly Markets, Campbell’s and the Food Bank of Western New York gathered in Buffalo Tuesday to announce the donation of 20,000 cans of soup to four New York food banks.
The “Soup-er Bowl” event marked the culmination of “Family Meals Month,” when Tops and Campbell’s pledged to donate a can of soup for every can purchased at a Tops store. The cans were divided evenly among the Food Bank of Western New York, Foodlink, the Food Bank of Central New York, and the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.
“The Food Bank of WNY thanks Tops Friendly Markets and Campbell’s Soup Company for their continued partnership in the fight against hunger. This wonderful donation of soup will provide warm, nourishing meals for our neighbors in need during this cold winter,” said Tara A. Ellis, President & CEO of the Food Bank of WNY. “
