Giving Back

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:

  • 40 million people struggle with hunger in the United States, including more than 12 million children.
  • A household that is food insecure has limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy life.
  • Households with children were more likely to be food insecure than those without children
  • 58% of food-insecure households participated in at least one of the major federal food assistance program — the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps); the National School Lunch Program and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (often called WIC)

The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY 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.
