FALLSBURG — The Town of Fallsburg, in collaboration with the Hudson Valley Food Bank, The Arc Greater Hudson Valley, River Valley Estates, and Fidelis Care, is thrilled to announce the outstanding success of the inaugural monthly Pop-Up Food Pantry. This community-driven initiative has made a significant impact by providing essential food supplies to over 70 individuals and families facing food insecurity in our town.
The Pop-Up Food Pantry, which took place on May 30, 2023, at River Valley Estates, brought together local organizations, and government officials who worked tirelessly to ensure the event’s success. The event was able to provide much-needed sustenance and relief to those experiencing difficult circumstances.
The Pop-Up Food Pantry served as a vital resource, offering a wide range of nutritious food items, including fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins. Volunteers were on hand to assist individuals and families in selecting items that met their specific dietary needs and preferences, ensuring that no one left empty-handed.
Kathy Rappaport, Town Supervisor, expressed her gratitude for the community’s support and the success of the Pop-Up Food Pantry, stating, “We are incredibly proud of the response and impact of our first monthly Pop-Up Food Pantry. This collaborative effort made possible through the generosity of the Hudson Valley Food Bank, The Greater ARC, and River Valley Estates, has provided much-needed relief to our neighbors facing food insecurity. We are committed to continuing these monthly events to ensure that no member of our community goes hungry. The success of the first Pop-Up Food Pantry in Fallsburg highlights the power of compassionate community and civic collaboration.”
