Food distribution set for county fairgrounds Aug. 31

CHATHAM—The second drive-thru food distribution will be held on August 31, from 10 a.m. until the food is gone at the Columbia County Fairgrounds, 182 Hudson Avenue, Chatham. Use the Route 66 entrance.

Households will receive fresh fruits and vegetables, and dairy products, along with canned and frozen food.

The organizers say that no one should arrive ahead of time. Arriving early will cause traffic and large crowds. Everyone should wear a mask and stay in the car. Those who are walking should practice social distancing. Adhering to these instructions will allow the volunteers to distribute food safely and quickly.

Catholic Charities, the Northeast Regional Food Bank, the Chatham Silent Pantry, Valatie and Ghent Pantries have joined forces to organize the event.
