Feeding Our Neighbors in the Hudson Valley

About ShopRite

Starting on Sunday January 21st until Saturday, February 3rd, 2018, 27 ShopRite supermarkets in the Hudson Valley will be asking shoppers to make non-perishable food or cash donations at checkout. Thanks to last year’s shoppers, $92,000 in cash donations and more than 23,000 pounds of food were collected to ensure that hungry New Yorkers in the Hudson Valley had enough to eat. This year, our goal is to surpass last year’s results.

Day 2 in Honduras: We first met with a center that welcomes and orients migrants coming in from the US. The people who work at the center provide medical care and provide kits to migrants that include toothbrushes, toothpaste and razors for men. Many of these migrants are denied brushing their teeth for weeks sometimes. Later in the day we met with participants of Youth Pathways, a program that helps young people with leadership skills and skills that will help them enter the workforce. Then we met with a group of union leaders and we learned about the different situations they face in fighting for worker's rights, but also when gang violence affect coworkers.
