Greylock Federal Donates Food Bank of Western Mass
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Greylock Federal Credit Union has donated $20,000 to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts for its emergency food delivery program in Berkshire County.
The gift is in response to a growing need throughout the country and in Berkshire County.
"Hunger is always a leading community concern," Greylock Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer JamieEllen Moncecchi said. "But the longer this pandemic goes on, the more critical it is that we all do our part to help our neighbors. Greylock hopes that this donation will inspire others to dig a little deeper this year."
According to Feeding America, the national network of food banks, Berkshire County is expected to see a 52 percent rise in food insecurity compared to pre-COVID-19 levels.
"We can't thank Greylock enough for this donation and for helping spread the word," Andrew Morehouse, executive director of The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, which serves the four western counties of the commonwealth, said. "These funds will help support our eight Brown Bag: Food for Elders sites in the Berkshires and our Mobile Food Bank sites in Adams, Dalton, Great Barrington and North Adams all in collaboration with our local partners."
