Food Pantry & Community Garden

Access to nutritional food is critical to personal and community health. With only 4 large-scale grocery stores serving all of Washington County, finding reasonably priced healthy food options is difficult. LEAP helps increase community access to healthy food options by operating an emergency food pantry, sponsoring a community garden and partnering with Comfort Food Community.

Emergency Food Pantry

  • The Food Pantry is now open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 8:30am – 3:30pm! 
  • Visits are now limited to once per month (30 days)
  • Food delivery is not currently available

We provide three days of food for individuals and families based on household size.

To receive food you must provide proof that you are a resident of Washington County.

Call: (518) 746-2391


The Community Garden gives individuals and families access to fresh produce during the growing season. LEAP will provide the seeds, soil, and plants. Water for your garden is available on-site. Additionally, our community garden provides ample volunteer opportunities for individuals and small groups. If you like getting your hands dirty and working outside and are looking for a new volunteer opportunity, email our Outreach & Development Coordinator at [email protected]!

Location: 49 Main Street Hudson Falls, NY 12839
