An important part of the Putnam County Wine & Food Fest is giving back

to the community. A portion of this year's proceeds will be going to

support Hillside Food Outreach, a 501c3 not-for-profit, which exists

to provide food to those in need throughout Westchester, Putnam

Counties, and Western Connecticut. Founded by Executive Director

Kathleen Purdy, it is their mission to deliver food to people who are,

for whatever reason, unable to access local food pantries and to

provide food bags for special needs diets, such as diabetes.

The Putnam County Wine & Food Fest is still accepting sponsorship,

vendor and volunteer applications. More than 3,000 people attended

last year's event, and the festival expects to keep growing with new

products and offerings.

Additional events and activities will be added in the weeks leading up

to the festival. Sign up for email alerts to get all the details as
