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 identify those most at risk. Farmers donate produce, and local chefs Jamie Parry and other volunteer professionals cook and package more than 3,000 dinners a month. Drivers then deliver the meals 4 days a week.
We're Hosting a Garden Party Fundraiser
We’re hosting a garden party to continue our work combating food insecurity. You’ll meet the chefs, chat with the farmers, and join the fun in a glorious, secret Spencertown garden. The event is being held on Saturday, July 10th, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Refreshments will include prosecco or sparkling water and hors d’oeuvres created by chef Jamie Parry. Tickets must be purchased by Monday, July 5th.
