TheFood Bank of the Hudson Valley is dedicated to alleviating hunger, while preventing the waste of wholesome food.

“We are so grateful to our friends at The Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® for their support of our mission,” said Paul Stermer, Director of the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. “Our work is highly collaborative, and if not for such strong partnerships as this one, the fight to end hunger in our region would be a much greater challenge.

Working in partnership with the food industry, the Food Bank collects large donations of unmarketable but still edible food, and distributes it to charitable agencies feeding hungry people in a six-county region.
