February 14, 2014

NEW BERLIN, NY (WENY) -- Chobani is making an Olympic sized donation to New York food banks.
     As we reported, the Russian government wasn't allowing the yogurt to come into the country. Russia doesn't allow the importation of American yogurt, any yogurt.
     Despite efforts by New York Senator Chuck Schumer to deliver the Greek yogurt to U.S. athletes at the Sochi Games,
     Chobani will instead deliver the 5,000 plus units of fresh Greek Yogurt intended for Team USA to Saint John's Soup Kitchen in New Jersey and Food Bank For New York City.
