GATP for March

Our Give Away the Plate recipient for the month of March is the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.  

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 40 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies.  

Executive Director Mark Quandt will be with us on March 14 to help us learn more about how hunger is present in our part of New York State.
