The Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry needs your help.

We serve more than 200 families in the Ichabod Crane School District. Our dedicated volunteers could use your help in working on food distribution days, helping out with food pickup at local and regional locations (strong back required), helping with sorting and stocking on special food collection events, and helping with our special Thanksgiving and Easter food basket distributions. Our volunteers may commit to just a few hours a month or, if you choose, a bit more. We just need some of your time and a good and helpful attitude toward our neighbors here in Northern Columbia County. Please contact Carol Kelley at 518-784-2593. Thank you for your consideration.


There is an online Tri-Parish Events Calendar. Please consult it for the latest information.
