The 2021 Most Important Meal, presented by Hudson Valley Credit Union, took place on Sunday, October 24th at the Fishkill Recreation Center. We raised nearly $6,000 for our food closet program, which is one of very few HVCS programs not funded by government grants.

Hudson Valley Credit Union Presents: The Most Important Meal 2021

Sunday, October 24th, 2021

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

Join HVCS at the Fishkill Recreation Center on Sunday, October 24, 2021 from 9:00 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 with cereal, granola or oatmeal and your favorite dairy (or dairy-free) topping. Not a cereal lover? We’ve got you covered with hot food items. You’ll also get bottomless coffee, tea and juice. This year we will not have the cereal buffet but all food options will be self-serve or grab-and-go. We’re also dreaming up new entertainment, contests, raffles and of course there will be the silent auction –all while raising funds for HVCS’ food and nutrition programs.

Our food and nutrition programs serve hundreds of people and families each year, and the budget is currently $10,000 short for 2021. We are hoping to raise that–and double–to ensure these vital services remain available for those in need.

Tickets

Tickets are $35.00 per person over the age of 13. Children 12 and under are free! Scroll down to purchase tickets online or call (845) 787-1789.
