ALBANY, N.Y. – One SUNY School is sharing some Earth Day spirit by teaming up with the Regional Food Bank to help grow fresh and healthy food for those who are less fortunate.
Faculty, staff, and student volunteer at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering met at the Patroon Land Foundation on Tuesday to prepare a 14 acre farm for planting. They helped plant a variety of vegetable from broccoli to zucchini at the farm.
Student Ani Levine said she hopes to produce enough food to help the hunger in the Capital Region.
“I love to help out and we're just hoping to make a difference, have food for some homeless people, as well as people who get their food from food banks,” said Levine.
CNSE has become involved with projects on Earth Day for several years. The College said their annual goal is to support those who are most in need.
