Like many of the fortunate, I have a grocery store not far from my home. If I run out of eggs or crave something sweet, I hop in the car and pick it up. Easy. However, that's not the case for a large portion of Americans.
Even in the world’s greatest food-producing nation, children and adults face poverty and hunger in every county across America. In 2017:
The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY https://regionalfoodbank.net/ has been helping feed the hungry in Northeastern NY since 1982. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving the hungry & disadvantaged in 23 New York counties.
As a way to support the work of this amazing organization I have created the Tree of Giving necklace. 100% of the profits from the sale of this necklace will be donated to the Regional Food Bank.
