  • On Thursday, August 6, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany and the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York are teaming up with the Metropolitan New Testament Mission Baptist Church to address food insecurity with a mass food distribution in Albany, NY.

    The food distribution, or “drive-thru pantry” is a part of Catholic Charities’ mobile outreach initiative, CC MOVE, and is an effort to provide supplemental and emergency food in areas with limited access to services at time when many are struggling. Food items provided by the Regional Food Bank will be pre-packaged by volunteers from partnering organizations and distribution will begin in the church parking lot at 9:30 AM. The distribution is open to the public and no pre-registration is required. 

    Food is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and the distribution will last until supplies are gone.

    In order to maintain appropriate safety and social distancing, there will be two distribution lines: a drive-through line, and a walk-in line. Cars can enter through the 3rd St. entrance. Due to traffic concerns, guests are asked not to arrive prior to the 9:30 start time.

    Volunteers needed! Volunteers needed to help package and distribute food items. Interested volunteers are asked to arrive at 8:15 AM. RSVP via email to Abbie at abbie.terwillinger@ccrcda.org.
