Food Bank for Westchester launches hunger awareness campaign

Employees and volunteers of the Food Bank for Westchester, wearing bright orange T-shirts, filled a press conference Tuesday, while elected officials showed off their best orange ties and dresses to kick off September Hunger Action month.

At a makeshift podium surrounded by rows of canned goods at the nonprofit’s 38,000-square-foot warehouse in Elmsford, Food Bank for Westchester President and CEO Leslie Gordon said that the group would be “painting the county orange.”
