In April 16, 2020

COLONIE (Times Union) — The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York was among the recipients of $275,000 in contributions to upstate food banks by NYSEG and RG&E, both units of Orange, Conn.-based Avantgrid.

The Latham-based Regional Food Bank is receiving $50,000 as it faces increased demand for its services in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“While the company has taken a number of steps to put customers first and assist those impacted by the ongoing situation, supporting local organizations such as the Regional Food Bank is an important step in caring for the communities we serve,” said Carl A. Taylor, president and CEO of NYSEG and RG&E.
