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, the Hudson Youth Center, the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement, medical offices, neighbors or self-referrals.
Farmers donate produce, and professional chef Tommy Carlucci manages five teams of fifteen volunteer cooks, who cook and package 1,150+ healthy meals a week.
Volunteer drivers then deliver the meals every weekday.
