Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Aiming to stomp out hunger in the Southern Tier, Weis Markets have teamed up with Wild 104 and 99.1 for a food drive.

They'll be collecting non-perishable foods in an RV outside of the Weis on Upper Front Street, Binghamton.

All the food will be given to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, or CHOW, which will distribute the food to families in need.

Louie G will DJ a dance for free for the school that brings the most non-perishable foods.

"Anything. And you know, all the grocery stores are great around this time because they have sales on the non perishables. So if you can bring by one can, if you can bring by a case, whatever you can bring by, it's all going to help out CHOW. And families will really appreciate it," said 104.1 radio personality Louie G.

It is close to Thanksgiving, so any canned pastas or potatoes would be a big help, too.
