The Most Important Meal

The Most Important Meal 2018Purchase your tickets right here, right now! Scroll down just a little bit.

Help local people who are living with chronic illnesses get the nutrition and support they need to stay as healthy as possible!

Join HVCS and Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union at the Fishkill Recreation Center on Sunday,October 28, 2018 from 9:30 am to 12 noon for a fun-filled breakfast blast from the past. Every ticket includes a commemorative souvenir bowl so you’ll always remember that the most important meal is the one you made possible for someone without enough food.

Fill up your bowl at the all-you-can-eat cereal and granola buffet including fun mix-ins, fruit, a variety of Hudson Valley Fresh milks and yogurt (gluten-free and vegan options will be available, too). You’ll also get bottomless coffee, tea and juice. Watch some of your favorite cartoons and bid on fantastic silent auction items–all while raising funds for HVCS’ food and nutrition programs.

Our food and nutrition programs serve hundreds of people and families each year, but their government contracts can’t fully support them, or they rely entirely on support from caring people like you.


Tickets are $30 per person over the age of 13. Children 12 and under are free! Scroll down to purchase tickets online or call (914) 785-8277.
