Farm Stand
This seasonal program which runs from May to the end of October offers free fresh produce from local Hudson Valley Farms. It begins at approximately 8:30am and goes until noon or until produce runs out, whichever is first. No ID is required for this program. Please bring your own bags. This program is in conjunction with Local Economies Project, Community Foundation of the Hudson Valley and the Regional Food Bank of North Eastern New York.

Your Choice Food Pantry
Our “Your Choice” Food Pantry supplies fresh, frozen, canned and boxed food that equals at least three days’ worth of meals to our needy community. We aim to offer a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, proteins and whole grains based on the USDA healthy food guidelines. When visiting the food pantry individuals are encouraged to select the foods which are right for their family, rather than receiving pre-packed bags. Recipients can visit the “Your Choice” Food Pantry once a month; however, they can also visit our “Fresh Bounty” area and choose free food items daily. All food is provided free of charge. Last year we provided over 300,000 free meals to our neighbors in need.

Bag Summer Hunger
This program provides additional breakfast and lunch foods for families with school age children in Ulster County. It begins at the end of school in June and runs until school begins in September. Parents/guardians can visit us once per week to get this bag of groceries (which changes each week). We also offer Bag Holiday Hunger which is the same program the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
