Members of the The Fr.Henry Tansey AOH Division #5 of Albany NY recently volunteered at the Northeastern New York Food Bank in Latham. Members assisted in sorting and packing several tons of food that will help feed the hungry and those in need in the upstate New York region. Division #5 members aid the food bank several times a year.
The Regional Food Bank has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in our communities since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 30 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies.
