PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A 2023 DONATION to the BackPack Program. BackPacks are sent home each Friday with students through June. Just $1 will purchase FOUR meals for a BACKPACK! Total donations from Retiree Council 10 members from July 1 to February 28 are $17,888.27.

Pandemic funding for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and free breakfast and lunch for all school children has been reduced and/or ended. The Regional Food Bank is diligently working to fill the gap.

RC 10 members worked with U Albany students and other young people sorting food at the Regional Food Bank on February 15. The work is fun and enjoyable—many thanks to all our members who have so generously volunteered their time.
