Since 1990, through the efforts of now approximately 40 faithful volunteers, the Rondout Valley Food Pantry continues to accomplish its mission to feed the hungry in our community. The client base continues to grow and the pantry is able to meet this need through the combined support of stakeholder churches, dedicated businesses, civic organizations and concerned individuals.
Every week, our dedicated, all-volunteer "mini-army" shops, stocks shelves, and dispenses nutritious food for what amounts to almost 100,000 meals a year!
We need individuals to shop, pick up food from mass distributions at various points in the county, fresh produce form Ulster County Community Action in Kingston and also to pick up food from our twice monthly Food Bank drop off in Hannaford's Plaza in Kingston. AS well pack and dispensing during pantry hours which are Tuesdays and Thursdays for 9-11am at the pantry. To coin a phrase, "Many hands make light work."
