October is World Hunger Action Month and the Rockland Community Against Hunger coalition is holding a food drive this weekend, Oct. 18 and 19, to benefit a dozen local food pantries and meal programs.
The drive, “Scare Away Hunger,” will be held at several Rockland County grocery stores including:
- DeCicco’s in New City
Benefitting food pantries include: Iglesia La Mision, Westcop, Christ Church of Ramapo Food Pantry, North Rockland Food Pantry, Nyack Food Closet, Rhoda Bloom Kosher Food Pantry, Rockland Independent Living Center, Rockland Interfaith Breakfast Program, Shirley’s Cupboard at Greenbush Food Pantry, Sloatsburg UMC Food Pantry, Spring Valley SDA Food Pantry, St. Ann’s Food Cupboard, St. Peter’s Food Pantry, and Together Our Unity Can Heal (TOUCH).
Collectively, these food pantries and feeding programs serve more than 35,000 meals per month.
In addition to the Rockland Community Against Hunger, the food drive is being supported by the Girls Scouts of the Heart of the Hudson.
