TOPS & CAMPBELL’S HOST SOUP-ER BOWL DONATE 20,000 CANS OF SOUP TO FOOD BANK OF WNY
(Williamsville, NY) - Today The Food Bank of WNY was the recipient of 20,000 cans of nourishing and delicious Campbell’s Soup thanks to a donation made on behalf of Campbell’s Chunky Soup and Tops Friendly Markets. The partners hosted a Soup-er Bowl event benefitting the Food Bank of WNY at the agency’s headquarters located at 91 Holt St. in Buffalo. For every can of Campbell’s Chunky Soup that a customer purchased at Tops during Family Meals Month, Tops and Campbell’s matched that purchase with a donation of soup, helping to share a meal with those in need in the community. “The Food Bank of WNY thanks Tops Friendly Markets and Campbell’s Soup Company for their continued partnership in the fight against hunger. This wonderful donation of soup will provide warm, nourishing meals for our neighbors in need during this cold winter,” Tara A. Ellis, president and CEO of the Food Bank of WNY. This donation of 20,000 cans of soup will be spread out evenly to four food banks including the Food Bank of WNY, Foodlink in Rochester, Food Bank of Central New York in Syracuse, and to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. Since partnering together six years ago Campbell’s and Tops have donated nearly 120,000 cans of soup to local Food Banks.

“We are so fortunate to have forged this partnership with Campbell’s to help eradicate hunger which is one of the major tenets of Tops’ philanthropic missions,” said Kristen Hanson, vice president of center store and pharmacy merchandising for Tops. We are proud of the program, its success, and how it will help those less fortunate in our local communities.”
