WHITE PLAINS—The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, recently presented a check for $5,000 to Feeding Westchester in Elmsford.

Feeding Westchester is at the heart of a network that sources and distributes food and resources to some 300 partners that feed people who are hungry in every community in Westchester. Currently, more than 200,000 Westchester residents count on Feeding Westchester to provide access to nutritious food.

Each year, Feeding Westchester recovers more than three million pounds of good, nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste. It also supplies 95% of all food distributed annually by the region’s local agencies and offers education for healthier eating.

“We are grateful to have the support of our generous partner, Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation,” said Leslie Gordon, president & CEO of Feeding Westchester. “Their donation provides healthy food for our neighbors who are hungry and we could not do this crucial work without the support of generous donors like Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation.”

Established in 2004 and relaunched in 2013, the HG Realtor Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley. As concerned members of the communities we work in, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
