We have great news to share with our community! The Food Bank at Columbia will now be known as The Food Pantry at Columbia! This name change is a result of our recent collaboration with The Food Bank for New York City (FBNYC). Across the nation a food bank is defined as an organization that collects food to then distribute to other charities/organizations. A food pantry, the arms reaching out to the community, will then distribute food to its recipients.
FBNYC has been serving charities and providing meals throughout NYC for 35 years and we are very excited to be a member of this organization. This collaboration will provide us a consistent source of food while enabling us to better serve our Columbia community in the fight against food insecurity. Please continue to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter!
We are very excited about this collaboration and would like to thank everyone involved in making this possible!
