If you are looking for delivery of food to your house, we are unable to provide that service. But please call The Food Pantries of the Capitol Region (TFP) at (518) 458-1167 and they can help.
Volunteers are needed! Volunteers staff our pantry and assist regularly with food deliveries and stocking shelves on the mornings of the second & fourth Tuesdays of the month, which we receive from the Regional Food Bank in Latham. In addition to our Food Pantry, we are able to assist our families through our Boutique (see below) and/or refer our families to area agencies to address their specific needs. If you are aware of an area family that needs this assistance or if you would like to volunteer your services to make a difference in our community, please call us at 518-482-3375.
