Hillside Food Outreach received a $5,000 grant on August 23 from McDonald’s to support a program designed to educate parents about childhood nutrition.
Launched in March by local McDonald’s restaurants, the New York Metro Nutrition Network awards money to grassroots groups to establish nutrition programs and provide information about healthy-eating.
The Pleasantville-based organization delivers food to more than 2,000 people each month in Westchester and Putnam. To learn more, visit hillsidefoodoutreach.org or call (914) 747-0095.
