Community Food Access and Security Initiative Donations for Kingston’s Blue Fridge
CEHV’s Food Access and Security Initiative is continuing to support The Blue Fridge
What is The Blue Fridge? It’s a refrigerator that sits on the sidewalk outside the Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church, and is available for anyone in need of food to take what they need. The fridge also provides a way for the community to contribute to the health and well-being of our neighbors by making donations of fresh produce, pantry goods, and homemade meals.
CEHV is encouraging congregants to help our neighbors and their families to have access to nutritious foods. Consider making a donation of food items typically used to cook a meal, such as;
- Fresh vegetables and fruits
- A prepared turkey breast or chicken
- Pantry staples like flour, sugar, oil or seasonings ,eggs, butter, milk
- Stuffing mix
When dropping off food at the Blue Fridge, please label items with the date they are donated.
Monetary donations can be made to the Food Access and Security Initiative, which will be used to shop for needed items at the Blue Fridge. Donations up to $25 can be given directly to our Super Shopper, Cindy Silver. Please send checks to:
- 9 Reeder Road
- Rhinebeck, NY 12572
- Or Venmo: @Harvey-Silver
Larger donations should be sent by check to CEHV, and earmarked for the Food Access and Security Initiative/ Blue Fridge.
