On Saturday, November 4, Food Bank hosted a Families For Food Bank Saturday Repack at our Warehouse and Distribution Center. Over the course of two shifts, volunteers helped repack boxes filled with shelf-stable milk, dried fruit, pasta, canned protein, and cereal to fuel our Silver Program supporting New York City seniors through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP).
Together, they packed 11 pallets, totaling 13,860 pounds of food or about 4,188 meals for those in need! Thank you to board member Lauren Bush Lauren, Faith Salie, and all who came out to roll up their sleeves in support of our mission. We are consistently amazed by our supporters, especially our youngest volunteers who are just beginning their journey of giving back to our community.
