Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- The holidays may be over, but a local non-profit is already gearing up to feed families next Thanksgiving.
The Interreligious Food Consortium
announced a new fundraising effort on Friday.
They’ll hold a harvest bounty dinner in October to raise money and awareness for hunger in our community.
They’re also kicking off a long-term food drive to make sure that families have food to eat all year round.
"We're finding more and more people are having a hard time making ends meet especially at the end of the month, sometimes they have to choose between rent, feeding their children, medical expenses,” said Michele Jordan with the Interreligious Food Consortium.
The Interreligious Food Consortium helps support the 70 food pantries in Onondaga County.
