Wow! The All for One Dutchess County Interfaith Council, Inc. food distribution organized by Seema Rizvi, MD and Ravi Sinha, MD was such an incredible event to witness. We were glad that we could provide some produce for their distribution. Not only did they gather food and organize this mass distribution, they were able to raise more than $40,000, a portion of which will be donated to local food and support organization like Dutchess Outreach. THANK YOU! We are so grateful. It takes a community during times like these and gosh are we in love with ours.
