Chobani to host giveaway on Saturday


NORWICH — In continued appreciation of its hometown friends and neighbors, Chobani is hosting its sixth annual Community Giveaway.

This year, in support of statewide health and safety measures to combat COVID-19, Chobani officials said they are relocating the event to the Chenango County Fairgrounds in Norwich — a more spacious outdoor venue.

Every December, the company hands out 5,000 free cases of Chobani products as a thank you gift to local residents. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 5, 10 a.m. to noon while supplies last. It will be a contact-less, drive-thru-only event. The company requests all attendees wear masks.

“We fully support all measures being taken to keep our community safe during a global pandemic and want to do our part to ensure the well-being of our employees and the public,” said Alyson Oüten, director of community relations. “Giving back helps enrich the communities we call home and bring better food to more people. And just as importantly, the county fairgrounds location will allow patrons to stay safely in the comfort of their vehicles while our employee volunteers place yogurt in the trunk.”
