UP! That’s what everything is doing these days.

Every day, more and more people are showing UP at food pantries and soup kitchens. Recent cuts to SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps, means that the number people going hungry will go UP, UP, UP! The number of kids starting off the school day hungry is skyrocketing. That’s why Radiowoodstock, Skydive the Ranch and the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley are partnering to help raise awareness and money with “JUMP FOR FOOD”.

Help the food bank feed our hungry neighbors. DONATE NOW and join us at Skydive the Ranch when we JUMP FOR FOOD!


The Third Annual Mid-Hudson Walk for Celiac Disease
May 10 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

celiac featureThe Third Annual Mid-Hudson Walk for Celiac Disease is just around the corner and straight across the Walkway Over the Hudson. More than 2-million Americans suffer from Celiac Disease, and cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten free foods are available but expensive and rarely found at food pantries and soup kitchens. Some of the proceeds from this year’s walk will benefit the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley to help in its efforts to provide gluten free foods to those in need. Following the walk there will be a Gluten-Free Fair where you can speak to experts and find gluten free foods. To register visit: Digestive Disease Center of the Hudson Valley
