Food Bank of Central New York
April 15, 2012

The Food Bank of Central New York is an incredible place. They took the idea of a food bank and made it so much more - not just handing out bags of food to local families in need (although they still do that, too). They coordinate large donations from local stores and businesses. They ship food to hundreds of food pantries, food banks, soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers, and emergency organizations throughout New York State. They have educational programs that teach people about nutrition, growing their own food, and give them the seeds and materials they need to keep going. They do a fantastic job marketing themselves and their cause, gaining more attention for the issue of hunger and more donations to the Food Bank - helping them buy a huge new facility last year with a ton more storage space. It even included a new fridge and freezer so they can provide even more fresh and nutritious foods to those who need them. EVERYONE in New York State should learn more about the food bank and give whatever they can or volunteer their time to help this amazing place.
