Who HelpS Us

Thank you to the team at Whole Foods for raising $15,966 through their Feed Four More Campaign. Through this campaign customers could donate money to purchase food for families in need in Westchester County. Your fundraising efforts were a huge success as your customers gave generously. Pictured from left to right, Katie Cole – Marketing Team Leader, White Plains, Kate Flanagan – Marketing Team Leader, Port Chester, Amzad Latiff – Store Team Leader, White Plains, Ellen Lynch, Executive Director, and Nancy Lyons, Volunteer Services Manager.


 

Thank you to Congresswoman Nita Lowey for stopping by our offices and supporting the role that we play in addressing the hunger issue. We appreciate her concern about the challenges facing our struggling Lower Hudson Valley families.


 

Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger has donated $10,000 for political advocacy efforts. The grant will support Food Bank initiatives advocating for hunger relief and a hunger-free environment. With politicians in Washington proposing major cuts to vital anti-hunger programs to balance the budget, the timing of this donation couldn’t be better.
