The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley’s Gift Alternative program offers people an opportunity to feed their hungry neighbors by making a donation to the Food Bank in honor of family, friends, and business associates.

Contributions to this program help the Food Bank provide nutritious food all year long to food pantries and other charitable agencies feeding hungry people in 6 counties of the Hudson Valley.

For a donation of $5.00 or more per gift, the Food Bank will provide a card acknowledging that a financial gift to feed the hungry has been made in the name of the recipient. The Food Bank offers a memorial card, an “In Honor of” card for birthdays, anniversaries, etc., and five specially designed holiday cards.

The holiday cards contain the following message, except the Gift Basket card, which is blank: “In recognition of your generous spirit and in keeping with the true meaning of the holiday season, a financial gift to feed the hungry has been donated to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley.“
