Join the Wolf to help feed hungry families here in the Hudson Valley by donating non-perishable food items and/or cash for the Wolf’s Pure Leaf Jam the Van Food Drive, November 18 through November 20.

Stop by ShopRite locations in Poughkeepsie, Fishkill, Kingston, Lagrange, and New Paltz the weekend before Thanksgiving and make a food or cash donation to benefit The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. By donating to the Food Bank, you are helping people throughout every county in the Hudson Valley. Last year, the Food Bank provided more than 12 million pounds of food to nearly 400 member agencies in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, Rockland, Sullivan, and Putnam counties.

Join CJ, Jess, and Beth at the ShopRite in Kingston from 10-3 on Saturday, November 19. If your organization or club is doing a food drive this month, that would be a great time to donate and we'd love to meet you.
