November 2019

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area (BGCCA), CDPHP, SEFCU, and Brown’s Brewing Company introduce Freight Farm, an innovative new way to fight food insecurity, teach children, and generate revenue through high-tech hydroponic farming.

Freight Farm uses no pesticides and 90 percent less water than traditional farming methods. Along with teaching children about science, technology, agriculture, and commerce, the Freight Farm is a sustainable revenue source for the BGCCA. The Freight Farm was donated by SEFCU and the teen program is supported by a grant from CDPHP.

Food Program

BGCCA's Kitchen serves thousands of meals daily to feed area youth and runs year-round for CACFP, the summer, and the school year. 

The BGCCA kitchen more than doubled its output within 48-hours to meet the community needs due to the start of the COVI-19 pandemic. 

Free Food Fridge

On the corner of Delaware Ave & Dana Ave in Albany.

Free perishable food and produce available daily and 100% free.

 

The BGCCA Free Food Fridge is the seventh installation in the Capital Area.
