During the months of November and December, the Regional Food Bank offers the unique Holiday Gift Alternative program. This program offers people an opportunity to provide a special tribute gift to family, friends, or business associates – in lieu of giving a more traditional holiday present. For a donation of $5 per gift, the Food Bank will send a special holiday card or email to the designated recipient notifying them of the special and unique endowment made in their name. To donate more than $5, please use the ‘Donate Now’ button after you’ve completed your card order. Again, thank you from the Regional Food Bank. Your gift will help provide nutritious food all year long to food pantries and other charitable agencies feeding hungry people in 23 counties of northeastern New York.

You can also order these cards in bulk to be shipped directly to you to personalize with your own holiday greetings before mailing.

All orders are subject to 1-3 business day processing plus USPS standard delivery. The Food Bank is not responsible for delays associated with USPS service.

Cards being sent to individual recipients will start November 1 in the order we received them. Bulk card orders are now processing immediately when placed.

holiday card designs: 1-cornucopia; 2-wreath; 3-dove; 4-ornament on tree; 5-tree made of fruits; 6-full moon in twilight; 7-snowman
