Delivering Nutritious, Balanced Meals to Children and Adults in Need
Families and individuals throughout Columbia County struggle with food insecurity every day, and the economic impact of the Covid-19 shutdown has hit these vulnerable communities especially hard. Even after the economy reopens, this distress will continue. In recognition of this issue, local food advocates and chefs created the Columbia County Recovery Kitchen (CCRK). Our 501-c3, volunteer organization prepares and delivers meals to adults and children throughout the county. Social workers from Columbia County schools and Columbia County social services identify those most at risk. Neighbor referrals and self-referrals are also welcome, as of 2021. Farmers donate produce, and local chefs Jamie Parry and Tommy Carlucci and other volunteer professionals cook and package close to 4,000 dinners a month. Drivers then deliver the meals five days a week.

We Need Your Support
Your tax-deductible donation allows us to provide nutrition-rich, balanced meals to our Columbia County neighbors in need. Our community’s generosity has been inspiring; however, CCRK needs additional funding to continue.
