Temple Israel's Little Free Food Pantry

We are so excited to have a food pantry available to the greater Albany community. It is towards the back of our parking lot, by the garage. We welcome donations of non-perishable foods to fill our Food Pantry. Our Food Pantry was build as an Eagle Scout project by Amitai Goldmeer and our community is beyond appreciative.  Please click here for an article about our new Food Pantry.
