The Feinstein Foundation helps more than 2,000 anti-hunger organizations around the country boost their fundraising efforts through its annual challenge.  All donations received in support of the Food Pantry before April 30 will count toward the challenge, at the end of which the Community Action Planning Council will receive a donation from the Feinstein Foundation based on the amount of food and funds raised in March and April.


There are 21 days remaining in April … still plenty of time to get involved.  Join our friends at Maines Paper and Food Service and support the Feinstein Challenge.  Call 315.782.4900, ext. 257 to learn more.
