Partners and staff of personal injury law firm Finkelstein and Partners participated in the second annual Hudson Valley Food Frenzy, located in Cornwall. The Food Frenzy is an event organized to raise food and monetary donations for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, in recognition of September’s Hunger Awareness Month. Run as a friendly competition, a prize is awarded to the company that brings in the largest total donation.
Finkelstein and Partners collected food and monetary donations at all of their Hudson Valley locations during the Food Frenzy competition – a total of 2,300 lbs. of food was collected. The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley serves the counties of Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, Rockland, Sullivan and Putnam. Last year, more than 8 million pounds of food was delivered by more than 360 participating organizations.
“The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley does a great job of providing food to those in need throughout our region,” said Andrew Finkelstein, Managing Partner of Finkelstein and Partners to The Sentinel. “Unfortunately as our area continues to struggle with the economy and people remain out of work, the number of people turning to the Food Bank is greater than ever. I’m proud that our firm family is pulling together to help others in our community through their time of need.”
Nearly 17.5 million or 15 percent of Americans went hungry in 2008, according to USpoverty.change.org. Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson established September as Hunger Awareness Month due to the region’s high demand for food assistance programs.
