Can You Help? Citywide Food Drive Happening Now
When we think of donating food to our community food banks, it's usually around Thanksgiving or the holidays. There is one city in the Capital Region that every year at this time, they do a big push for donations. Here's how you can help. In conjunction with the Food Pantries For The Capital District, the City of Albany is doing their 5th Annual Month Long Citywide Food Drive. It began on Monday and runs through August 2nd.
Each year, this food drive provides over one million meals to local families in need. Think of all the children that are out of school and not receiving meals during the summer. This food drive helps to provide meals so they won't go hungry.
The citywide food drive is asking for healthy, nonperishable food items to be dropped off at various locations throughout Albany. They include Key Bank locations, Alive At Five Concert Series, St. Peter's Health Partner locations, and more.
