Dear Friend,

Thank you for your loyal support of Food Bank of Central New York. Every gift you send helps in two ways...

Your gift provides immediate food for hungry people and it helps us create long-term solutions that address the root causes of hunger so our neighbors can be self-sufficient and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

That is why your support of our 2014 Annual Fund Drive AGAINST HUNGER is so critical.

Thousands of our neighbors are food-insecure, meaning they do not have enough nutritious food and worry when they will eat their next meal. No one chooses to be hungry. Many people who come to a food pantry or soup kitchen have exhausted all their other resources. Your support nourishes hungry children, helps seniors live independently, enables individuals to rebuild their lives, and makes it possible for parents to provide for their families.

Your generosity goes so much further than you can imagine. For every $10 you donate, we can provide enough food for 26 meals for a hungry child.

A gift from you will provide more food to neighbors who are hungry in your community. Please send your gift today. Together we can solve hunger.

Warmest regards,

Kathleen L. Stress
Executive Director

P.S. Give today and your gift will help more than ever! A portion of donations that we receive from March 1, 2014, through April 30, 2014, will be matched by the Feinstein Foundation $1 Million Challenge. Please send your most generous donation today.
