Worried About How the New Tax Law May Affect Your Year-End Donation?
Be assured, donations made before midnight, December 31, 2017 fall under 2017 tax rules. If you are worried about 2018, consider “doubling up,” adding next year’s planned gift to this year’s, and claiming the total on your 2017 return.* Donate Now.

THE FOOD BANK OF THE HUDSON VALLEY AND TOWN SUPERVISOR BRIAN MAHER ANNOUNCE HISTORIC GRANT AWARD!
The award to the Town of Montgomery was made through the Community Development Block Grant CARES program administered by New York State Homes and Community Renewal. Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for food assistance across the Hudson Valley Region grew substantially and the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley outgrew its current facility.
The new distribution warehouse will provide increased capacity to obtain, store, and distribute food donations to 400 member agencies in six counties in the lower Hudson Valley: Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, Sullivan, Rockland, and Putnam Counties. It is estimated that nearly 179,000 low- to moderate-income New Yorkers in the Hudson Valley are currently receiving food assistance.
Molly Nicol, CEO of the Regional Food Bank of NENY and The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley said “this is exciting news that will be a game-changer in our ability to serve the needs of those experiencing food insecurity in the Hudson Valley. We are grateful to the entire team who worked to make this happen.”
The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley is a member of Feeding America. Feeding America sets standards and acquires food donations from national companies for its 200+ member food banks located throughout the country.
The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley is also a member of Feeding New York State, which helps the food bank network obtain more food and funds, and fosters public awareness of the food banks’ mission.
