March 22, 2017 – Attention All Food Bank Member Agencies!

Last year the Board of the Regional Food Bank authorized a $2 million expansion project to better serve our member agencies and fulfill our mission to alleviate hunger in our community.

We would greatly appreciate it if you would write the Governor and State Legislature today to express your support for an appropriation in this year’s State Budget to help finance this vital project.

March 9, 2017 – Updated USDA Availability Notice

Due to a mandatory USDA Inventory and Inspection being conducted at the end of June, No USDA Commodities may be picked up at our warehouses or delivery sites from June 26th – June 30th.

The previous message stated that this change in commodities distribution would take place in March. Please disregard that message. USDA Commodities may be ordered the last week of March.

Please make sure to access this product at other deliveries and pickups throughout the month. Agencies picking up in Highland and Stony Point, please order your monthly supply of USDA at your delivery earlier in the month, as it will impact your end of month delivery. Agencies that pick up in Hudson may want to place an order to be picked up in Latham or at an alternate delivery location.

WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE.
