The Regional Food Bank has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in our communities since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 30 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies. Donations come to the Food Bank in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes food needs to be sorted and repacked before it can be given out. Volunteers help repack bulk-packaged items into useable, family-size packages; sort useable items from damaged products; and re-label mislabeled or unlabeled cans and bottles. The Food Bank also receives a large amount of non-food items that need to be sorted – things like soap and shampoo, household supplies, linens, dishes, etc. Whatever you sort when you volunteer at the Food Bank, your efforts help low-income families stretch their limited budgets and eat better.

Legacy is a voluntary organization providing services to 70,000 families of veterans who have died or given their health. Today Legacy's caring and compassionate service assists over 70,000 widows and 1,900 children and dependents with a disability. The 25th of April marks the anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli and Legacy. Legacy needs volunteers like you to hand out rosemary sprigs to the general public watching the march in the city. The reason for passing out and wearing rosemary is two-fold: firstly, the smell of rosemary is thought to improve memory, with reports of Greek scholars wearing rosemary in their hair to help them while they studied. Secondly, rosemary has a direct link to Gallipoli, where the ANZAC troops fought in 1915 - rosemary can be found growing wild all over the peninsula. On ANZAC day, wearing sprigs of rosemary is thus synonymous with remembrance and commemoration.
