Malone Village Mayor Andrea Dumas Delivers Emergency Food Packages

The following excerpt is from an Adirondack Daily Enterprise article:

More than two dozen low-income and elderly households that might have been facing food insecurity because of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak received on Thursday a week’s worth of food — almost all of it grown or made locally.

AdkAction, a Saranac Lake-based nonprofit organization, in partnership with the local-food promotion group the Hub on the Hill, delivered emergency food packages to the Malone village offices on Wednesday for redistribution to those in need in the community. The packages contained roughly a week’s worth of food — eggs, bread, apples, healthy snacks, yogurt, greens, granola, soup and two trays of frozen entrees — that was purchased from eastern Adirondack farms and packed by paid local labor at the Hub on the Hill in Essex.

The two organizations plan to provide at least 100 boxes of food every week for the next 10 weeks, with deliveries in the Malone area set for Thursdays. A total of 1,000 packages — representing 15,000 meals — will be created and delivered.

The packages will be delivered in Franklin, Essex and Clinton counties, according to the AdkAction website.

Those hoping to benefit from the program are screened for eligibility through community service agencies in each county; in Franklin County, that screening is done by Community Connections.
