Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – WDTN’s annual Food for Friends campaign wrapped up its 37th year with corporate partner Kroger.

Since 1982, WDTN-TV has collected over 13 million food items that were distributed to families in need throughout the Miami Valley.

This year, thanks to your generosity, we collected around 46,199 pounds of food between Wednesday, November 14 and Monday, December 24.

Residents were invited to donate a non-perishable food item or toiletry item to the Dayton Foodbank by dropping their donations into one of many Food for Friends barrels set up in Kroger stores across Montgomery, Clark, Clinton, Miami, Darke, and Greene counties.

Thank you to all who helped us reach our goal!
