BATH, N.Y. (WETM) – Nearly a dozen Steuben County AmeriCorps Seniors/RSVP volunteers packed 360 emergency shelf-stable food boxes Thursday at the Bath Central School bus garage for residents relying on home-delivered meals.
The volunteers’ efforts will reduce the impact of COVID-19 in the event the current pandemic spike forces senior meal centers to close.
Steuben AmeriCorps Senior Coordinator Christine Towner said the Food Bank of the Southern Tier
provided 7,978 pounds of food, valued at $13,881.
The project was assisted by Shirley’s Lumber in Bath and the county Public Works Department.
