11.5% of Columbia County’s population of 60,000 struggles with food insecurity
16.5% of Columbia County children are hungry
OVER 1500 nutrient rich, cost-free meals are cooked and delivered every week to 26 towns and the city of Hudson
Families and individuals throughout Columbia County struggle with food insecurity every day.
CCRK, a 501-c3, volunteer-driven organization prepares and delivers meals to adults and children throughout the county.
Recipients are referred by social service agencies including DSS, Columbia County public school counselors, Columbia Opportunities’ Head Start, the Hudson Youth Center, the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement, Office on the Aging, medical offices, neighbors or self-referrals.
Farmers donate produce, and chefs Tommy Carlucci and Kathy Silliman manage five teams of fifteen volunteer cooks, who cook and package over 1500 healthy meals a week.
Volunteer drivers then deliver the meals every weekday.
We are seeking a dynamic, community-minded Executive Director who will manage multiple efforts including outreach, fundraising and communication working with the CCRK Board. The position is initially part-time (25 hrs/wk) with the possibility of full time later in the year.
