Feed Our Vets speaks out at Utica Common Council meeting

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV)- A local non-for-profit made their voice heard before the state of the Utica Common Council meeting Wednesday night.

Feed Our Vets, an organization that services the needs of veterans and their families, is looking to purchase the Running Hall of Fame Building in downtown Utica.

The organization is facing opposition and backlash from neighboring businesses. Richard Synek, director of the organization, said they are just like any other non-for-profit.

"They do not want a not-for-profit in that building and we're replacing a not for profit," he said. "The running hall of fame is a non for profit organization just as we are."
