Since its founding in 2008, the Foodstock Fund has raised over $30,000 for The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, as well as countless food items for Dutchess Outreach. The Fund has also provided the grand Thanksgiving buffet for the residents, staff and foster families of the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie.

The Foodstock Fund strives to be a unique charity that encourages participation from everyone in the community. There are many things our neighbors and children can go without – food is not one of them. For more information, visit
