|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 – www.cityofbeacon.org – 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.
