Food Connect Map
The Food Pantries kicked off this project by gathering comprehensive community food resource information, then creating an asset map that includes resources such as food pantries, community and senior meals, summer feeding programs for children, and product access.
Food Connect Statewide Map helps connect people to community-based food assistance programs and basic resources throughout New York State. This map and its data are available for any person or organization to use to help more New Yorkers.
Recordings from the NYS Food Summit are available on The Food Pantries’ YouTube Channel:

All are invited to join us on Zoom for a thought-provoking conversation about the future of emergency food aid in the Capital District and beyond.
