| March 23, 2021
Chasing the Dream: Food Pantries and Food Banks. This week on Chasing the Dream, we take a look at the work that the Food Bank of the Southern Tier is doing in our region, how food pantries are an integral part of a complex system to make sure that no family goes without food, and how COVID-19 has impacted those in need as well as the organizations working hard to help them. We also speak with Dan Egan, Executive Director of Feeding New York State, about the challenges of food distribution on a state-wide scale.
