AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Amsterdam will hold a food distribution event for its residents on Friday at Veteran’s Field on Locust Avenue. Distribution begins at 10:30 a.m. and lasts until they run out of food.

“This is a hard time for folks living in our City and our goal here is to make it a bit less hard for those most impacted by the health and economic stresses caused by the Coronavirus outbreak.”

Amsterdam Mayor Mike Cinquanti

The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, Montgomery County, and several local organizations and businesses are helping to organize the event. The Regional Food Bank will give the city 15 pallets of food.

Residents can collect their food in three different ways:

  • Pick up food from the lower parking lot on food for those who don’t have a vehicle
  • Home delivery by reservation
