SARATOGA SPRINGS — Mark Quandt has announced his retirement from Northeast Regional Food Bank after 38 years.

The Regional Food Bank has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in the greater Capital Region and beyond since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York and collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties, including across Saratoga. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 40 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies.

Congressman Paul D. Tonko issued a statement following the announcement of Quandt’s retirement. It reads: “Mark Quandt is one of the finest people I have ever known. His work as Executive Director brought our Northeastern Regional Food Bank to new heights and helped lift thousands of our neighbors, friends and loved ones out of the pain of hunger and despair, and every step of the way he has done so with a deep spirit of compassion. I appreciated his tireless work to better serve the needs of my own constituents. I am humbled and deeply grateful for the gift of his decades spent addressing human need in our region. He remains a beacon of hope and inspiration to many, and I wish him my very best as he embarks on his next chapter of life.”
