Guilderland Food Pantry is powered by a group of hard-working and dedicated volunteers. These heroes receive, catalog and pack food for client distribution, complete home deliveries, prepare food backpacks for school aged children, prepare holiday food baskets and work tirelessly to ensure no one in our community goes hungry.
There is no better way to give back to your community than serving. We have a variety of ways you can help from serving in the pantry, delivering food, helping with holiday meals, etc. If interested please contact the pantry by filling out the volunteer form, sending us an email or calling us at 518-930-1001.
