There has been fewer better models for success in providing food to our most vulnerable population in Utica and Oneida County than the one created by Mike Servello. For years, Compassion Coalition and ‘Your Bargain Grocer’ has developed into one of the most effective food pantries in all of New York State. Mike has worked incredibly well with our local officials, organizations, State and Federal Agencies to increase not only the amount of food supply, but the additional assistance needed in Utica’s most underserved community. I commend Mike for his dedication to this effort. Thank you Pastor Servello for leading the way.
