ALBANY, N.Y.--Hundreds of volunteers in Guilderland and Loudonville neighborhoods came together to help fight hunger through the seventh Annual Neighborhood Food Drive. 

The Regional Food Bank received 22,239 pounds of food and $600 from this event.

"We are so excited by this total," said Mark Quandt, the Food Bank's Executive Director, "Not only for the achievement it represents, but for the thousands of people who will eat as a result of this collection. This food drive will supply more than 18,500 meals to hungry people in our community."
