Each week on ‘In Touch’, our locally produced public affairs program, I have the pleasure of talking with individuals and organizations from all over the Hudson Valley. We focus on non-profit organizations and volunteers who are working hard to help make all of our communities better places to live, work, and raise our families.

This week, Jessica Fetonti; Special Events Coordinator with the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley and Paul Stermer; Director of the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley stopped by our studios to talk about food insecurity that thousands of Hudson Valley residents face everyday.

While Jam the Van, our annual food drive to benefit the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, is coming up next week at Shoprite stores throughout the area, they talked about the food needs year round for families and especially children. They also talked about how a food bank works, the counties they serve, and their 400 member organizations they help keep stocked to feed people in those communities.

As Paul said, hunger doesn't have a look, a season, or a neighborhood.

 

 

If you, or someone you know, is involved with a non-profit organization here in the Hudson Valley and would like an opportunity to come on the show and talk about what is important to you. Please let me know, leave a message here or email me at beth.christy@townsquaremedia.com
