Fighting Food Insecurity in the Hudson Valley

Over 40 million people in the United States suffer from food insecurity, a lack of consistent access to the nutritious food necessary for a healthy life. In Ulster County alone, nearly 18,000 people are food insecure. That’s why one of our main mission focus areas is fighting hunger, and over these past several years, Redeemer’s Project H.O.P.E. has gathered food items for Family of New Paltz, and, more recently, has been helping to distribute fresh produce to those in need. It’s why we’ve partnered with Phillies Bridge Farm Project.
Food justice is one of the three pillars of the Phillies Bridge Farm Project’s mission. They share our belief that everyone has a right to fresh, healthy, nutritious food, and just like at Redeemer, Phillies Bridge Farm strives to create the food resources where everyone has access to fresh nutritious food.
During this season of Lent, please consider adopting the practice of almsgiving. If you’re in a position to make a monetary donation, and join Redeemer and Phillies Bridge Farm in working towards achieving this goal.
100% of your monetary donations will go directly toward Phillies Bridge Farm’s Sliding Scale CSA Share Program, which provides financial assistance to those in need gain access to farm fresh veggies.
