Times Union: St. Peter’s Adds to Albany Food Drive

The Times Union published a story about SPHP’s participation in a recent food drive in partnership with The Food Pantries for the Capital District. Over the course of the food drive, staff at St. Peter’s Hospital and Albany Memorial Hospital donated a total of 2,000 pounds of food – matching the goal of the entire city-wide food drive – which represents 1,666 meals for the Capital Region’s most vulnerable residents. From the story: St. Peter’s Health Partners held a food drive in coordination with the city’s and delivered the collected items on Friday for The Food Pantries for the Capital District. Responding to an increase in the number of children and single adults who either repeatedly missed meals or cannot afford nutritious meals, a coalition of Capital Region food pantries teamed up with the city of Albany and KeyBank last month to urge people to donate food during a two-week food drive that ended Friday.
