Drop off non-perishable goods at local restaurants, wine stores to benefit Foodlink
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) – From now to the end of September, the people in the community are being asked to drop off non-perishable goods at certain local restaurants and wine stores.
It’s part of Constellation Brands food drive to benefit Foodlink.
Constellation Brands launched its Nourishing Neighbors initiative in 2014 to help combat food insecurity and has partnered with Foodlink on several projects.
“Our employees really embrace this ongoing partnership with Foodlink and understand how hunger can have a devastating impact on the Rochester community,” said Tom Kane, Chief Human Resources Officer at Constellation Brands. “Plus, with September being Hunger Action Month nationwide, we felt it was an appropriate time of year to bring this serious issue to the forefront once again.”
