We have already collected over 100lbs. of food for the North East Regional Food Bank, we will continue to collect food until December 31, 2016. We are once again asking our community, clients, and employees to continue to bring or send in non-perishable items that we can donate to the food bank. The Regional Food Bank has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in our communities since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 30 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies.
