The Markertek Fund has been a consistent force in our community and beyond for 20 years. It is recognized both locally and nationally for its hands-on, interactive philanthropy.
The primary vision of the Markertek Fund is helping those who need emergency food and shelter right here in our community with an ongoing, annual account at The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.
Each dollar Markertek donates to the Food Bank provides $10-$12 in real food to local soup kitchens, food pantries, emergency shelters, senior, day care and medical rehabilitation sites. These food and shelter providers reap the rewards and experience some peace of mind by having an established, consistent source for emergency food.
The Regional Food Bank and the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley partner together in providing 23 NY counties with over 20 MILLION pounds of food to over one-thousand emergency food providers.
The Food Bank also obtains additional advantages from our consistent contribution. The Markertek Fund commitment improves their status in applying for federal and state grants and matching funding challenges.
