This brings us over 117,000 lbs. since we started in 2006. That’s the weight of about 61.5 fully-loaded 1982 Chevy Chevettes. This was a 700 lb increase compared to 2019. Also, some schools used their donations for their own in-school food shelf, so the totals were actually a little higher.

We have total numbers by school going back to 2010, Arcadia’s 2,458 was the 3rd most ever (behind ARHS 3,215 in 2010 and ARHS 2,954 in 2017).


Dr. Beth Bentley

We at the GTA are saddened to learn of the passing of GCSD’s Dr. Beth Bentley.  Beth was an outstanding educator, a fair and honest colleague, and, most importantly, a great person.  We send our sincerest condolences to Beth’s family.  We’ll miss her.

An online memorial for Beth has been created and can be found here.  We will share details about a planned memorial for Dr. Bentley that is being planned for February 15th.

Take Action- Fully Fund Foundation Aid for Public Schools! #FundOurFutureNY @nysut


Inadequate funding is the primary driver of education inequality in our state. In the coming weeks and months, I (Andy Pallotta) will personally be traveling across the state, touring schools with local members, other NYSUT leaders, and Legislators to draw attention to the impact that inadequate funding has on our schools, our kids, and our communities. Schools in our state are owed more than $3.4 billion in Foundation Aid.

Take action NOW at the NYSUT Member Action Center to tell state legislators that fully funding the Foundation Aid formula is the right thing to do for our future and our schools.
