The Food Pantry

The Food Pantry at State Street Presbyterian Church has been in operation for over ten years. Started by Pastor Jamie Maldonado and and its congregation. Soon in February of 2018 the baton was passed on to Elder/Pastor Maria Delacruz who along with her dedicated family have kept the mission of providing food to the Schenectady Residents. Along with her Elder Minnie K Torres joins her to be Coordinator who oversees volunteers and other programs, Joshua Torres who is in charge of delivery and Jaime Delacruz as Stockroom, they and a slew of volunteers manage the Food Pantry who serves between an estimated 250 to 400 families each month.

Clients of the Food Pantry must present a valid photo ID for all adult household members household over the age of 18, along with proof of residence. Anyone under the age of 18, may present a non-photo ID, or birth certificate or insurance cards with date of birth. The pantry does not allow household members to open their own case, you must allow the head of household to list you under their form. Clients may come once a month, allowing 30 days for their next pick up, as this is intended to be an emergency pantry to supplement other sources of food. The pantry supplies 3 days worth of food items per household.

Some non-food items such as baby wipes and diapers, cat food and dog food may be available upon request.

Food delivery is not available at this time. “Bedbound Program” is only available on a case to case review and only available strictly for individuals. You will need to call at (518) 709-9268 and ask to speak to Minnie Torres. 

HOURS
The Food Pantry is open on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 12:30pm - until 3:00 pm or until we run out of numbers.
