Food Pantries need holiday help

Hear about how the need for food has continued to increase in the capital region. Learn how you can help nonprofits meet the need, or where to get help if you need it. Natasha Pernicka, Executive Director of the Food Pantries for the Capital District, talks with Brea Barthel about how the organization’s member pantries have served 70,000+ people this year, with 80% of members noting an increase in services. She explains why donating money may be the easiest and most efficient form of support, so that organizations can pay their bills as well as buy culturally appropriate food as needed. Natasha also invites people to help “Fill the Truck” (with money) to support their healthy food initiative. For details on getting or giving support, visit Produced by Brea Barthel for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
