Assemblywoman Russell Takes Action Against Hunger

Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell stopped by Community Action with good news about a legislative initiative to help fight hunger. Thanks to Addie’s advocacy, the Food Bank of Central New York is receiving a $15,000 grant, administered by the Office of Children and Family Services.  The funds will be used to support North Country food pantries.
