Storing Food In Hamilton's House To Help Feed Those In Need

July 30, 2020 | 6:58pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a number of logistical challenges for our nation's food banks and pantries. Transportation and warehousing have been key among them. Recently, Move For Hunger has been working with GoGo Squeez and the Sloatsberg Pantry, in New York State, to help deliver food to assit hungry children in the area. The pantry let us know that they were running at full capacity, and were having difficulties making deliveries for the hundreds of meals they provide each month.  Not only was their warehouse full of food, but they'd also utlized, and filled, Alexander Hamilton's former estate to help store food donations coming in.

They joined the food pantry in offering consistent transportation support to help move meals out of the warehouse faster and into the hands of those who need it most. We're grateful for all the incredible transportation partners, like Clancy, who have generously donated trucks, drivers, and volunteer resources to assist during these challenging times.

 


The COVID-19 Pandemic has left a massive economic impact and has drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Move For Hunger is actively searching for ways to meet the demand, but we're going to need your help.
