Inspired by Feedback’s Feeding the 5000 campaign in the US, a series made possible by support from The Rockefeller Foundation, the event drew attention to the Hudson Valley’s priorities around preventing wasted food.

Held to coincide with the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley‘s “Walk to Fight Hunger” that day (10am-12pm), Feeding the Hudson Valley officially kicked off at 11am, lasting until 3pm that afternoon. In addition to the free meal, proposed event activities include cooking demonstrations, prepared remarks from partners, booths staffed by local organizations, and more.

Communities were invited and encouraged to get involved in the lead up to Feeding the Hudson Valley. We asked why not join the movement and volunteer?

Sponsors: Feeding the Hudson Valley was made possible through funding from the NYS Pollution Prevention Institute through a grant from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
