People to People and the Corner Bakery Team Up to Raise Funds
People to People, Rockland's largest hunger relief organization, and Corner Bakery Cafe have teamed up to raise funds and awareness for the thousands of Rockland families who struggle to put food on their tables each day. On Wednesday, September 10th, 15% of sales at Corner Bakery Cafe generated by People to People supporters will be donated back to the organization. Guests can obtain the fundraising flyers directly from People to People located at 121 West Nyack Road in Nanuet or via their website at www.peopletopeopleinc.org.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for us to partner with one of the largest organizations in the county to help the many families in Rockland who need assistance," said Martin Maslag, General Manager for Corner Bakery Cafe located at The Shops at Nanuet. Corner Bakery Cafe will partner with People to People on several events throughout the year including the upcoming "Get Saucy" on October 9th where they will provide desserts for the evening.

People to People is Rockland County's largest hunger relief organization, providing critical food relief to thousands of Rockland families who struggle to put food on their tables. People to People is currently providing food assistance to an average of 3,500 individuals each month, 49% of whom are children living in food insecure households. Open 5 days a week and one evening, 52 weeks a year, the Food Pantry provides meat, poultry, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, bread, and shelf-stable items to client families. Certified clients are also able to select gently used clothing and can participate in Back to School with Dignity, which provides school supplies to children living in need, and Project Joy, through which generous donors "adopt" a family for the holidays. People to People also provides weekend food packages to children who participate in free or reduced fee lunch programs, but who are at risk of hunger on the weekends. People to People helps our struggling neighbors through difficult times with dignity and makes Rockland a better community for all of us.
