Food Bank of the Hudson Valley delivered over 10,000 pounds of non-perishable and perishable foods to Community Action in Kingston, NY. Community Action turned around and contact local food pantries in Ulster County to help replenish their supplies for their community. The Outreach Centers in Kingston, Highland, Ellenville and Monticello in Sullivan County filled their shelves. At the same time, supplies were picked-up by Community Action of Greene County, Salvation Army of Kingston, United Methodist Church, St. Mary’s & St. Andrews Church and Family of Woodstock in Ellenville, and the Rondout Food Pantry. This donation stretched food over three counties!
In addition, Scott Baber, CEO of Galo Productions and the Hudson Valley Current have teamed up with Community Action to prepare meals for our residents of Ulster County. To date, over 800 meals have been prepared and delivered to those in need including the Senior Residence at the Healthy Way in Ellenville and the United Methodist Food Pantry. Many of the meals are distributed through the Kingston Resilience Program and Radio Kingston.
