Hungry children are more susceptible to illnesses and behavior problems. In 2018, 1 in 10 people in Columbia County ate a meal prepared from an emergency food box.  All who qualify for emergency assistance are within 185% of the federal poverty level.
Seniors have to choose between medication and food.
We distribute over 12 tons of food a week throughout the county. Included in this number were:

  • children under the age of 18
  • people who are vulnerable, including seniors and the disabled
  • working people whose income is not sufficient to cover the basic necessities
  • the unemployed
Columbia County’s unemployment rate continues to be well above the state rate.
We are seeing more employed individuals as many new jobs are either part-time and/or slightly above minimum wage.
