HOLLAND PATENT — The Foothills Rural Community Ministry Food Pantry will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, 8, and 15, and Thursday, Aug. 27. It will also be open on Wednesday from 4-6 p.m. The food pantry is located in the Holland Patent Presbyterian Church’s Fellowship Hall on the corner of Route 365 and Church Street.
To keep clients and volunteers safe during the pandemic, the food pantry continues to follow the guidelines and procedures of the Food Bank of Central New York. This means that only one client at a time may come into the building for a short interview with a volunteer. After the interview, they should wait in their cars until volunteers bring the groceries up to them.
Due to the pandemic, the Food Sense program is on hold until further notice.
The Country Corner Thrift Shop will reopen for business on Aug. 1, and will also be open on the 8, 15, and 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Customers must wear face masks. All may shop at the Country Corner, as the profits benefit the food pantry.
