The Food Pantries for the Capital District’s Response to COVID-19

From the desk of Matt Shaughnessy, Director of Development & Marketing at The Food Pantries of the Capital District

As essential services, local food pantries are open and anticipating a further increase in demand. The Food Pantries for the Capital District are #here2help!

How we help:

  1. Food funding allocations for more than 65 local food pantries
  2. Food delivery at no cost to local food pantries
  3. Our Food Access Referral Line will connect you to your nearest food pantry if you need help right now (518-458-1167 x108)

Given unprecedented times, #TheFoodPantries is working diligently to ensure that our local food pantries are prepared in the face of circumstances threatening our most vulnerable neighbors.

How to join us:

  • Cash contributions — rather than donating cans or dried goods — can more efficiently shore up food stocks.  To donate, you can text endhungerTFP to 41444.  Or, visit our website here: http://bit.ly/33renUx
  • We are accepting individuals and groups looking to support our work via volunteering. Our local food pantries are in danger of losing many of their at-risk volunteers and can use your help. To get involved contact us at 518-458-1167 x104 or fill out this volunteer application: http://bit.ly/2U3H6M5

Thank you for making a #localimpact and doing what you can to feed the hungry in this moment. We value our relationship with the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce and the Women’s Business Council.
