The Food Bank of the Southern Tier started its annual "Check Out Hunger" event Thursday.
For the past 22 years, the Food Bank has partnered with local grocery stores to bring in financial donations for hunger-relief efforts locally. The goal is also to raise awareness on hunger in The Southern Tier.
So, through March 5th, donation coupons will be available at a number of local store checkout registers for shoppers. Those interested can make donations in their checkout process.
