Would you like to help increase access to nutritious foods in your own communities? If so, please join us for one of the above Volunteer Orientations. The Orientations will include presentations by local food pantries, soup kitchens, and Farm to Food Pantry initiatives. You’ll learn about the many opportunities to help support and grow local initiatives to address food insecurity and improve the quality of food available to those in need in our community. Volunteer opportunities include: helping to grow, glean and distribute fresh produce donated by local farms; help preparing lunchtime meals at a soup kitchen; food pickups from local grocery stores; stocking/organizing shelves and preparing food packages at your local food pantry; assisting with food drives and more. The Kingston Orientation will include presentations by Angel Food East, Caring Hands Soup Kitchen, People’s Place Food Pantry, and the Rondout Valley Growers Association Farm to Food Pantry Program. The Ellenville Orientation will include opportunities to assist with the Family of Ellenville Community Garden, Hotline, Food Pantry and Farm to Food Pantry Program. Family of Woodstock, Inc. is proud to partner with Community Action of Greene County to recruit, train and manage volunteers to build the capacity of food pantries and related hunger relief initiatives throughout Greene County. Information will also be available on volunteer opportunities with the Columbia Greene Domestic Violence Program, which offers both residential and non residential services in both counties.
