Hunger is here all year long,
not just during the holidays

On Monday, November 21, the SICM Food Pantry was happy to host a gathering of Capital Area faith leaders and Congressman Paul Tonko, to draw attention to the ongoing hunger crisis in our local communities. Religious leaders from many faith traditions delivered a message to state lawmakers that "Hunger is here all year long, not just during the holidays," and urged them to remember the needs of the many food insecure New Yorkers as they begin the budget process.

The numbers are in for the 9th annual Harvest for the Pantry Fundraising Dinner! We served more than 145 people at the dinner. With the overwhelming support of the community through donations, ticket sales, honorary committee memberships, silent auction , pick-a-prize and anticipated gift matches from GE and other employers, we were able to raise more than $18,000 for the Emergency Food Pantry. This amount will purchase almost 60 tons of food, or enough for the equivalent of over 37,000 meals!
These results reflect the understanding of the demand for food in Schenectady, and the ongoing commitment of the entire community to help meet that need. For those we serve, we thank you for your contribution to the success of the event. Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated. Photos
