Mount Kisco's Curtis Instruments Named Winner Of Food Bank's 'Golden Scoop'
The Food Bank hosts the Golden Scoop Corporate Competition each year to raise awareness and money to support its efforts to serve the 265 local front-line programs in Westchester that feed the hungry. Teams vie to repack the most bulk food into deliverable packages in one hour at the Food Bank’s Elmsford distribution center. The packages are then distributed to soup kitchens, food pantries and adult and child day care centers and shelters.
The Curtis Instruments team repacked 3,446 pounds of rice to win the trophy, almost 600 pounds more the second-place Stop & Shop team, which repacked 2,854 pounds. AQR Capital Management team finished a close third with 2,846 pounds. In all, the 11 teams repacked 27,770 pounds of rice.
Proceeds from the competition – each team pays an admission fee – benefit the Food Bank.
