Stocking the Chatham Food Pantry

Many Columbia County residents rely on local food pantries to ensure they are getting their basic nutritional needs met. However, as edible items are their focus, pantries are unable to offer staples such as toilet paper, toothpaste, diapers, laundry detergent, wet wipes etc. Furthermore, SNAP (the federal food program previously known as “Food Stamps”) does not cover non-food items. Understanding this need, Canaan Congregational has stepped up and created a drop off center for residents to make donations of such dry goods.

Both a large wicker basket, inside the entrance hall of the Church by the the office door, and a plastic bin outside the church on the porch, have been installed by the congregation to collect such items which are delivered to the Chatham Food Pantry weekly. Please join us and help our neighbors by contributing to this important initiative.
