1,000 Pounds of Food for 'Feed Our Vets' Pantry

UTICA, March 6, 2010 -- The Post's February food drive for “Feed Our Veterans” food pantry resulted in 840 pounds of food being delivered to the pantry at the Veterans Outreach Center in Utica, Commander Tony Palladino and First Vice Commander John Driscoll reported at the monthly membership meeting March 4.

That’s enough to feed 25 struggling vets for a week, Palladino noted.

Driscoll added that the post still had additional foodstuff to deliver to the pantry, which would bring food donations to a total of about 1,000 pounds.

Feed Our Veterans provides food for hungry veterans who are struggling financially or who are homeless. The food pantry is located at the Utica Center for Development (formerly the YMCA) at 726 Washington St, Utica. (The building also houses the Central New York Veterans Outreach Center, a coffee shop, and "internet cafe" called The Bunker.)

Feed Our Veterans has a website, FeedOurVeterans.org.
