Today we are featuring The Food Pantries of the Capital District, which services Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady counties. They have increased the amount of food delivered across these four counties by about 50% in response to recent community need.
Their Food Access Referral Line, 518-458-1167 ext. 108, is the best resource for those that find themselves in need of help. This program connects people with their nearest food pantry and basic needs resources.
The Food Pantries are still in need of donations and volunteers! Please visit www.thefoodpantries.org to learn how to help, and to find out the most-needed items for donation.

About Spirit of the Capital Region:
At Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, we have been working on a project called The Spirit of the Capital Region (SOTCR). It’s a video series featuring the many local businesses, events, and charities that those in our area can be proud of. We were set to premiere the series, but due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to take the project in a different direction. Now, we will feature a local small business or organization in a short video blog on weekdays to get the word out about what they are currently offering, and how we as a community can support them (while practicing the recommended social distancing).
We Want to Hear From You!
