Emergency Food Packages
Stretch Goal has been Met!
Wow – in just a few short weeks more than 650 donors have helped us raise over $130,000 to create Emergency Food Packages for for local families facing food insecurity due to the COVID 19 crisis.
With this funding we will be able to provide more than 2300 boxes of fresh, healthy food to local families in need. That’s 35,000 meals! Additionally, we will be expanding the program for a total of 14 weeks.
Although we have met our fundraising goals, we will continue to accepting donations at the following link:
Any new donations above the $130,000 will support the work that AdkAction and the Hub on the Hill are doing to build a more resilient local food system during the pandemic crisis and into the future. With your help, our region will emerge from this crisis with a stronger food system than ever before.
AdkAction has partnered with the Hub on the Hill to create Emergency Food Packages (EFPs) that contain one week’s worth of healthy meals for local families facing food insecurity due to the COVID 19 crisis.
The food in the box is being purchased from local farms and prepared and delivered using paid, local labor at the Hub on the Hill in Essex, New York. Families in need are being screened and selected by local agencies. We currently have the capacity to serve Essex, Clinton, and Franklin Counties.
