About Shalom Food Pantry
The Shalom Food Pantry was launched in response to the lingering recession and increased need in the Jewish community in the wider Albany region.
Our mission is to provide healthy food packages to individuals and families who are struggling financially, to help alleviate the costs of their groceries. We provide support while respecting people’s privacy and dignity. Although our primary focus is the Jewish community, we do not discriminate and help all who request assistance.
Shalom Food Pantry is a volunteer based organization. To find out more about volunteer opportunities, click here.
