Thanks to the leadership of Sister Peg Sullivan, RSM and her dedicated volunteers our Parish based food pantry serves an average of 30 young families, 144 individual adults and 30 homeless men and women each month? As a member of "The Food Pantries of the Capital District", we follow the geographic boundaries put in place by this group. We are open every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 - 11:30am except holidays or days on which schools may be closed due to weather.
Volunteers staff our Pantry and assist regularly with deliveries, which we receive from the Regional Food Bank in Latham, New York twice a month. In addition to our Food Pantry, we are able to assist our families through our Next to New Shop with new and used clothing, toiletries, OTC medications and small household items. We also refer our families to area agencies to address their specific needs. Most of the food and other items comes from generous donations but our Pantry/Outreach Center still must expend at least $500 each month on food to supplement the donations we receive. If you are aware of an area family that need this assistance, if you would like to volunteer your time to make a difference in our community or to make a donation contact 462-4357.
