Drive-Thru Food Pantry

The next community FREE food distribution will be held on April 16, 2021 starting at 9:30am at the Ballston Spa National Bank (BSNB) at 990 State Route 67, Ballston Spa. All families/community members are invited to enter the parking lot and remain in their cars while volunteers load FREE food/supplies into their car.

Thanks to the Regional Food Bank, an anticipated 18,000 pounds of food will be distributed at the event, including fresh produce, dairy, frozen meats and non-perishable food items. BSNB volunteers will welcome attendees and load boxes of food into each vehicle’s trunk. 

The event is open to the public and free of charge. Patrons will receive food on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.  All volunteers will follow CDC guidelines by wearing appropriate masks and gloves while actively practicing social distancing.  Sponsored by the Regional Food Bank and Ballston Spa National Bank, the FREE food give away will start at 9:30am and continue while supplies last.

Since last March, BSNB has supported the Food Bank’s efforts through volunteering as well as by contributing company donations of $60,000 and raising $22,000 more in community contributions. Because the need still exists, they have extended their matching campaign and will match up to another $5,000 in community donations.

Members of the public wishing to support the Regional Food Bank under BSNB’s matching campaign may donate directly via the Regional Food Bank’s donation site and selecting ‘BSNB Matching Campaign’ as the donation designation. Additionally, checks may be made payable to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and dropped off at any BSNB banking location or mailed to BSNB, ATTN: Regional Food Bank Matching Campaign, PO Box 70, Ballston Spa, NY 12020.
