People's Place is the largest food pantry in Ulster County and the only one open five days a week. Over the last few years we have increased the number of people in our community we've helped feed by more than 25% over the previous year. In 2016 we provided over 300,000 meals, so we are always looking for donations of non-perishable food items. We ask that you check the sell-by or expiration dates on all items before dropping them off. 

Our Top 5:

  1. Canned fruits
  2. Canned vegetables
  3. Canned meats
  4. Juices
  5. Childrens' cereals

Food items can be dropped off at our 17 St. James Street location in Kingston Monday through Friday from 9:30am to 1:00pm and Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm till 7:30pm.
