Harvesting Hope: Clock Tower Grill and Agape Project NY's Shared Thanksgiving Mission

Updated: Nov 17, 2023

In the heart of Hudson Valley, where a strong sense of community and a commitment to doing good prevail, the Clock Tower Grill stands as a beacon of generosity and compassion. Owned and operated by Rich and Cassie Parente, the Clock Tower Grill is not just a culinary destination, but a restaurant committed to lending its help to the community.

Rich and Cassie Parente opened the Clock Tower Grill in 2013, with a mission centered around providing higher quality products sourced from their own farm and local purveyors, the Clock Tower Grill ensures that guests enjoy a culinary experience rooted in local, sustainable, organic, and GMO-free ingredients. But their commitment to the community doesn't stop at serving delectable dishes; it extends to actively participating in events that aim to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

One such impactful collaboration is their partnership with the Agape Project NY, a grassroots community group founded by a group of women driven to assist others during the challenging times of the pandemic. The Agape Project NY is dedicated to recognizing and supporting individuals and families facing food and housing insecurity. One of their notable initiatives is the annual "A Thanksgiving to Share" event, designed to provide meals for those who may not have the means to prepare their own Thanksgiving dinner.

This year, the Clock Tower Grill proudly takes on the role of catering partner for "A Thanksgiving to Share." For a donation fee of $18 per meal, the Clock Tower Grill will prepare a feast that aligns with their values of using local and sustainable ingredients. The Thanksgiving dinners will feature organic local turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, and other traditional accompaniments, ensuring a memorable and nourishing holiday meal for all.

The beneficiary organization for this year's event is the Exodus Transitional Community, an organization that delivers innovative programming tailored to adults and youth affected by the justice system. With locations in Newburgh and Poughkeepsie, Exodus focuses on serving parents of minor children, with a majority living below the federal poverty level. Over the last two decades, Exodus has positively impacted over 25,000 individuals through a range of programs, including housing assistance, workforce development, youth empowerment initiatives, and outpatient substance abuse programs.

As the Clock Tower Grill joins hands with the Agape Project NY to make "A Thanksgiving to Share" a reality, the community has the opportunity to contribute. Donations for the event are being accepted through Sunday, November 19, offering a chance for everyone to be part of this meaningful initiative.
