Coronavirus update from Beacon Mayor Lee Kyriacou May 18th, 2020

This is Mayor Lee Kyriacou with a Beacon update. Today I want to focus on food resources.  In other announcements this week, I’ll relay information on New York State beginning to open up while we continue our social distancing.

Food Resources:  There are places to go for help with food – details are on the city website – – under Beacon Resources; in most cases you’ll need to call first.

School Meal Program:  Breakfasts and lunches for eligible children; pick-ups are Mondays and Wednesdays at 10 am at the high school and South Avenue School.

Fareground Community Kitchen:  Prepared “to-go” dinners are distributed at the school meals program, or by contacting them.

Beacon Community Kitchen:  At the Tabernacle Church, 483 Main Street; Monday through Saturday 11-2.

Forrestal Heights:  There are prepared meals for seniors, Monday through Friday 10 to 2.

Groceries: The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley provides grocery bags for pick up, on Wednesday 10-11, drive-up at the middle school, and walk-up only at South Avenue School.

Others:  Include pantries or meals at Dutchess County Community Action Partnership (DCCAP), St. Andrew’s/St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Springfield Baptist Church.

Thank you to all those involved in helping others.  Be respectful to all.  Stay well.
