FBST House Ag Committee Listening Session
On April 14th, the House Agricultural Committee held a Farm Bill Listening Session in Binghamton. Randi Quackenbush, our VP of Community Impact, got 3 minutes to address the House Ag Committee. This committee includes our two congressmen, Nick Langworthy and Marc Molinaro. Randi spoke to the committee and audience about what we see in our sector that touches the Farm Bill—urging them to protect SNAP in the wake of pandemic era supports being cut, dramatic inflation, and an increased need in our communities.
Remembering Mark Lisi
The recent passing of our lead Mobile Food Pantry Driver Mark Lisi was a tremendous loss to everyone at the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and to so many volunteers and program recipients who knew him as the “face” of the Food Bank.
