This summer, many kids in Erie County will struggle with food insecurity. They may not have access to meals and snacks while out of school.

But, you can help.

We will be taking your food donations on Friday, June 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Wegmans on Peach Street.

Items needed most include (sugar-free and low sodium, please):

  • Applesauce
  • Cereal
  • Cookies
  • Crackers
  • Fruit cups
  • Goldfish
  • Granola bars
  • Individual pasta dinners
  • Individual soups
  • Mac & cheese
  • Oatmeal
  • Packaged nuts

Help support the cause by using the hashtags #NexstarNation and #NexstarCares on social media.
