Food for Families 2019 Anchor Challenge

About This Campaign

News 8 WROC is once again teaming up with Tops Friendly Markets, Citizens Bank and WCMF Radio for the annual Food for Families campaign to benefit Foodlink. Food collected and funds raised will help feed thousands of food-insecure individuals and families in the Rochester area this holiday season.

The 4th annual Anchor Challenge returns -- and we invited some friends! The sunrise and evening news teams for News 8 are getting into the competitive spirit to see who can raise the most funds for this year's campaign. It's Adam, Maureen, Thad & Eric vs. Mark, Lia, Josh & Josh!

Donations are accepted now through Dec. 13 ... with the winner announced on one of the evening newscasts! For every dollar raised, Foodlink is able to distribute 3 meals to those in need. May the best team win!

We empower individuals and families to make healthy choices through nutrition education initiatives. Our food banking operations distribute millions of pounds of food to a network of nonprofit members.
