Angry Orchard Partners with the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley
This holiday season, Angry Orchard is teaming up with the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley to help feed the local community. Food insecurity is at a record high in America due to the pandemic and it has hit our Hudson Valley hard.
In an effort to help raise money, Angry Orchard has come up with a delicious program.
The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, which provides food assistance to nonprofit organizations combatting hunger in the Hudson Valley, has reported a 53 percent increase in the amount of people they serve needing assistance. As you can imagine, the increased demand has place a huge a strain on the food bank financially, as they struggle to keep soup kitchens and pantries stocked.
That is where Angry Orchards comes in. From November 9 through December 31, 2020, Angry Orchards will be donating $2.00 from each bottle of Albany Post cider sold to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. They will also be matching that donation up to $2,000* (see note below). Wow!
Albany Post cider has special significance, as it is the first cider they made from apples that were grown 100% on-site. The cider is sold in 750 bottles and is a celebration of community and the members who actually came out and help harvest apples.
If that weren't enough, Angry Orchard is also implementing a ‘Can-for-Can’ program, where anyone can stop off and drop off nonperishable items and receive 10% off a canned cider to-go purchase. Can-for-Can will run through through December 31, 2020. Seems like a win-win to me, because who doesn't like drinking for a good cause?
