“We are grateful to the Lipilekha Bangla Association for their support that will help us fight hunger and advocate for the estimated 200,000 children, seniors and their families in Westchester who are hungry or at risk of hunger,” said Food Bank for Westchester Executive Director Christina Rohatynskyj.
The Lipilekha Bangla Association was founded in 1982 by a group of Bengali residing in the Hudson Valley to promote their culture and language through events, the arts and education. Today, LBA is a registered not-for-profit organization that has evolved to promote charitable, cultural and educational initiatives. LBA’s mission includes providing humanitarian aid to disadvantaged children and elderly people of West Bengal, India as well as to those in Westchester County and New York State.

“We are very impressed with the services the Food Bank for Westchester provides to our community and are pleased to contribute to this organization,”
