According to Mid-Hudson News,
HUDSON – Since its founding at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia County Recovery Kitchen has seen a more than 61 percent increase in demand for its food assistance services.
The organization has helped hungry families throughout the county by providing over 70,000 nutritious, home-style meals.
As the rate of food insecurity continues to rise, Recovery Kitchen is meeting the need by increasing meal deliveries from four to five days per week.
Through an increase in farm donations, local produce and proteins have increased in Recovery Kitchen meals. Hudson Valley Fisheries has donated fresh steelhead trout, and local beef, pork, chicken, eggs and greens from farms like Wally Farms and Grow in Harmony Recovery Garden continue to be featured in many of Recovery Kitchen’s meals.
