Community Support during COVID-19
In addition to distributing food twice a week at GIAC, Food Bank of the Southern Tier will hold a drive-thru Community Food Distribution from 10am-12pm, Thursday, May 21 at Tompkins Cortland Community College, 170 North St, Dryden.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Registration will open on Tuesday, May 19 and Wednesday, May 20 from 8-4.
People can register online at the link below or by calling 1-833-432-3663. This distribution will feature an abundance of perishable items, including recent donations from Nourish NY. This is a drive-thru to limit person-to-person contact so you must be in a vehicle. Limited deliveries will also be available.
FREE food to our community every Tuesday and Thursday! Cornell University, Greater Ithaca Activities Center , and Food Bank of the Southern Tier have partnered to create a new downtown food pantry.
“Beginning Tuesday, March 31st from 1-4pm, and continuing each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, Cornell staff will be giving out boxes of food staples as well as frozen items at GIAC’s basketball court. They hope to provide food packages, each containing a three-day supply for a family of four, to 200 families on Tuesday and another 200 families on Thursday.”
GIAC is located at 301 West Court Street in Downtown Ithaca.
