Stewart’s Participation in Chowder Fest Provides 6,000 Meals to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York!

Chowderfest Donation to Regional Food Bank

On Saturday, February 11th, we served our all-new Southwest Corn Chowder at the Saratoga Chowder Fest. Over 750 bowls of our creamy corn chowder were served!

We raised $1,545 at the event and presented a check to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York to support their mission to feed those in need. This donation will provide over 6,000 meals!

Jennifer Frame, Director of Corporate Philanthropy at Stewart’s Shops stated, “The Regional Food Bank Food is a valuable community resource. We recognize that food insecurity is a real problem in our communities and there is so much need out there. The Regional Food Bank is a crucial resource for our communities, and we are proud to support them.”

We are proud to share with our communities. We have proudly supported the Regional Food Bank for over 20 years. In 2022, We provided over $150,000 in discounts and monetary donations to the Regional Food Bank.
