ABC Owned Television Stations





As part of its commitment to aid those in need that have been significantly impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic, ABC Owned Television Stations worked with Feeding America® to support efforts to source more produce and increase the number of nutritious meals provided to children and families who need it most. In 2020, ABC Owned Television group saw an urgent need to help food banks increase food drives, donations and provide more fresh produce within the 1,600 communities the eight owned stations serve. In a unique look behind the scenes, ABC's 'Localish' documented and aired on its network the journey of produce from seedlings grown in the soil of California farms to its transportation at full maturation across the country to a food bank in Illinois, and the logistics and operation efforts led by volunteers to distribute the fresh produce to families across the United States.
