State workers hold food drive

ALBANY -- Ste workers pitched in to fight poverty and hunger in the state on Wednesday by putting together a food drive outside the Governor's mansion.

The CSEA-sponsored program, called Strong Communities Work, sponsored the food drive that also doubled as a protest. Organizers say the Governor's policies benefit corporations through cash incentives and tax breaks, but don't create jobs. They say that means a growing number of working poor are struggling to feed their families.

The food collected will go to the Capital City Rescue Mission
