Established in 2000
Since inception in 2000, the CANY Food Donation Program of Otsego and Delaware Counties has had an annual banquet held near the end of September.
In 2012 we began hosting a yearly golf tournament at the beginning of June.
Each year we use the money raised at our annual banquet and golf tournament to pay for the processing of any legally harvested and donated deer. We spend all remaining money to purchase ground beef, ground turkey, and non-perishable food items. Our goal is to make sure the freezers and shelves are stocked at all of the food banks within Otsego and Delaware Counties throughout the year.
To date (Oct. 8, 2019), we have purchased 68.5 tons of meat which equates to 547,135 meals and we have spent $64,000 on non-perishable food items.
