HARRISON, N.Y. – Nabisco and the Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. are helping The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley provide hundreds of meals this holiday season.
Representatives from both organizations on Dec. 18 donated thousands of pounds of Nabisco food items to the food bank’s warehouse in Cornwall-on-Hudson. “The food bank is seeing record numbers of people in need of help this holiday season,” said Jan Whitman, executive director for Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. “This generous donation by Nabisco and Stop & Shop will help our food bank provide hundreds of meals to Hudson Valley families, making their holiday season a little brighter.”
According to data compiled by Stop & Shop, one in six residents of the Hudson Valley struggle with hunger on a daily basis. In the six counties served by the Food Bank of Hudson Valley, more than 60,000 people are requesting food assistance each week. “We are grateful to continue this partnership with Stop & Shop and the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley to help fight hunger in our local communities,” said Daniel Shiner, customer business lead at Nabisco. “The 10 pallets of Nabisco food products we’ve donated are the result of a joint effort across Stop & Shop stores in the New York metro area. This is an important part of our joint mission and a collective effort to support those with food needs during the holidays and throughout the year.”
