Under the leadership of Vonnie Hubbard, President of Abraham’s Table, an “army” of volunteers provided 23,000 nutritious lunches and 8,000 breakfasts for the children of Newburgh, NY, during the summer of 2013 after school closedt This totals about 1,000 lunches a day distributed throughout the city at public sites such as recreational facilities and pools. Volunteers come from service organizations and faith based community congregations. Tom Woodhull, a Newburgh School District Board member and the organization’s treasurer, became a volunteer after hearing Ms. Hubbard speak at his New Windsor-Cornwall Rotary club three years ago. Since then, the nonprofit organization has grown from 11,000 lunches at only 7 sites to today’s totals.
