CFC Executive Director Amie Collins expressed her gratitude for the partnership saying, “We are honored to receive this generous donation from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This partnership will help us continue our mission of providing real and nutritious food to those in need in Washington County and beyond.”


The delivery included staples like rice, beans, beef stew, and canned fruits and vegetables for the food pantry. CFC, who oversees the Greenwich Food Center and satellite food pantry at Cossayuna, offers a safe and welcoming environment for members of the community to access real, wholesome food.

CFC employees and volunteers get together to unload nearly 39,000 lbs. of food from the delivery truck!

Serving nearly 175 households per week through their pantry services, CFC uses the power of good food to eliminate hunger, support the local food economy, and build strong, healthy communities. In 2022, CFC moved more than 500,000 pounds through its service area of Washington, Warren, and Saratoga counties.
