- You provide local families in need with the highest quality, most nutritious, Grass Finished Beef.
- Meat and proteins are the most needed, but least donated item to food banks. You are helping fill that void.
Before the pandemic began, there was little general awareness of the poverty existing in our county. The Covid-19 shutdown has forced us to recognize the vulnerable communities around us that have lost employment and are struggling with food insecurity.
Countywide, food pantries provide much-needed access to groceries, but the offerings can be limited. In addition, food pantry products rely heavily on canned goods and other foods that can be high in carbohydrates but offer little protein. Therefore, there is a critical need for healthy, balanced meals made from fresh ingredients and delivered to people’s homes.
In recognition of this problem, local food advocates and chefs created the Columbia County Recovery Kitchen.
Within a month of conception, CCRK was up and running. The mission: to prepare and deliver nutrient-rich, balanced meals to vulnerable adults and children who have been referred to us by county social service organizations, public school social workers and the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement.
