15th Annual Neighborhood Food Drive Collects Enough Food and Funds to Provide More Than 41,000 Meals



The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York held its 15th Annual Neighborhood Food Drive over the weekend, and the food and funds raised will provide more than 41,000 meals to our neighbors in need.

75 Neighborhood Captains distributed empty bags throughout their neighborhoods early last week, then collected the full bags and delivered them to the Food Bank on Sunday, May 1 while 20 dedicated volunteers directed traffic, unloaded vehicles, and sorted donations.

“We couldn’t do the work we do without the community’s support,” said Joanne Dwyer, Director of Food Industry Relations for the Regional Food Bank. “With increasing food and fuel costs, more and more people are turning to the Food Bank for help. This food drive will provide more than 40,000 meals to our neighbors in need, and we are so grateful to all who participated!”

For those interested in getting involved, visit the Food Bank’s website at regionalfoodbank.net to make a donation or sign up to volunteer.
