"The community is so wonderful and generous. We just need to remind people that we are always here, and we are always in need of donations. Hunger isn't seasonal," said Cooper.
Elizabeth Snyder of the Regional Food Bank said that an upcoming annual event is a big boost to local pantries in the fight against hunger. The 14th annual Regional Food Bank's Chefs and Vintners' Harvest Dinner at Glen Sanders Mansion on Saturday, Sept. 27, in Scotia usually draws a crowd of more than 350.
"This event is complete with a cocktail hour featuring wine tasting and food demonstration tables. Then there is an elaborate six-course dinner prepared by the area's finest chefs. The dinner is a combination of fresh, New York state grown ingredients that are expertly paired with a New York state wine. It is a great night with great food for a wonderful cause," said Snyder.
