From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 50 million pounds of food a year to 900 agencies. The food provided by the Food Bank helps feed more than 350,000 people each month. For more information on programs offered by the Food Bank, visit regionalfoodbank.net.
