HUDSON — Farmers and producers who contribute food for meals served each week by the Columbia County Recovery Kitchen were recognized at an event on March 18 at Christ Church Episcopal where the kitchen used to prepare the food each week is located.

Started in the beginning of COVID by Carole Clark and Pam Kline to address food insecurity in the county, the all-volunteer organization with its chef, the only paid employee, has grown from delivering 200 meals a week to more than 1,150. And it has done so without reliance on commodity or USDA surplus food. Working with the local agricultural community , CCRK now has relationships with more than 26 farms. “It is the CCRK’s connection to the land and the farms that makes us different,”says Kline.​​
