If you live in New York State, you can donate money to food banks in your state. In addition to monetary donations, you can also send checks. There are many organizations serving those in need, so you can donate to one in your state or a few across the country. In New York, two of the most important ones are the FieldTrip Food Bank and the Olmsted Food Bank.
Olmsted Food Bank
If you need food or other basic essentials, consider donating to the Olmsted Food Bank. The organization works with local nonprofits to provide food assistance to the community. Its mission is to help alleviate the hardships associated with poverty and disasters. By providing food and essential household items, food banks help people in need and allow them to use their limited resources more efficiently.
While most food banks in the city serve a specific demographic, the Olmsted Food Bank is open to the general public. It is open daily from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., and it follows all health and safety regulations. The organization is supported by the Restaurant Workers Relief Fund.
The North Olmsted Food Bank is running out of supplies for some of its clients. In response to the low availability of food, the food bank is organizing a special event on Oct. 28 that will allow people to donate soup and snacks. This event will also feature a special Halloween movie. If you’d like to donate to the Olmsted Food Bank, please contact Andy Selesnik at the Great Northern Plazas in North Olmsted.
In addition to the Olmsted Food Bank, the chefs are raising funds for their favorite nonprofits. The first round of flavors launched July 7th. These flavors include Blackberry Tarragon, Tsai’s Honey Phoenix Oolong milk tea, and Krasinki’s toasted almond thyme. All proceeds will go to benefit these charities.
