Not many TV stations can point to a community project they’ve sponsored for 39 years. And even though this year’s Food for Friends will be slightly different due to COVID-19, kudos to WDTN for keeping a needed tradition like this going for such a long time.
“Our community needs us now more than ever,” said Trisha Rayner, Freestore Foodbank’s VP of externa affairs. “A virtual food drive helps keep everyone safe. For every dollar we can provide 3 meals and $25 helps provide groceries for a family.”
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.
Since WDTN Daton, Ohio, developed the first Food for Friends campaign in 1982, more than 13 million food items have been collected and distributed to families in need. “Dayton is one of the hungriest cities in America and we know the need throughout the Miami Valley is greater than ever,” said Joe Abouzeid, WDTN’s general manager
