More than 64,000 children across Central and Northern New York are food insecure. These kids do not know where or when their next meal will be.
This week, CNYCentral takes an in-depth look at child hunger. It is happening locally and we are taking a look at why and what is being done to combat it.
The networks of CNYCentral teamed up with the Food Bank of Central New York to stamp out child hunger.
On Friday, CNYCentral hosted a "The Face of Hunger in Central New York" telethon from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. The telethon raised $25,018.
You can still donate to the Food Bank by going to its website.
