Rick Rakow, president of Rakow Commercial Realty Group, Inc. based in White Plains, was honored by Feeding Westchester (FW) , the county’s leading hunger-relief organization, at the organization’s 30th anniversary celebration at Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown.

“He has been a longtime supporter of Feeding Westchester,” said Leslie Gordon, CEO of FW, formerly known as the Food Bank for Westchester. “Rick has served on our board of directors since 2000 and we’re honored to call him our dear friend.”

Rakow said, “No one should ever experience hunger, much less in a county as affluent as Westchester. None of this could happen without the hard work of our incredible staff and the nearly 30,000 hours provided by our volunteers, without the generosity of our donors and the important work and generosity of our great board of directors and our more than 300 community food programs throughout Westchester County.”
