That’s why after Tom, O&R’s Public Affairs Director, had delivered the fruits of his garden to everyone he knows, he took his lunch hour yesterday to lug 126 pounds of zucchini over to People to People’s West Nyack offices where he donated food to friends he’s yet to meet. Added to the zucchini he already has donated this season, Tom’s total contribution so far this year is just over 200 pounds. Tom’s efforts were part of the Plant a Row for the Hungry (PAR), an initiative originally organized in Rockland by Cornell Cooperative Extension and later adopted by People to People.“Plant a Row for the Hungry is a great way to provide struggling families with more fresh fruits and vegetables,” said Diane Serratore, People to People Executive Director.The People to People Food Pantry feeds nearly 4,000 people per month and is the largest food pantry in Rockland. The Food Pantry is open Monday through Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. donations of fresh produce as well as non-perishable food items can be dropped off at People to People during those hours.
