Food Pantry

Because of donations from the community, CAPTAIN CHS is able to provide nourishment to over 200 families each month.

CAPTAIN CHS operates an Emergency Food and Hygiene Pantry known as "Karyl's Kupboard," located at CAPTAIN CHS's Clifton Park office. The pantry is open to any member of Saratoga County who is in need of food, and it may be utilized once every 30 days. No appointments are necessary, and there is a simple application. The pantry is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10am - 3pm.  We accept donations during normal business hours. 

If you'd like to make a donation, here is a suggested List of Basic Pantry needs.  

Karyl's Kupboard would like to thank the community for the generous donations we receive from caring individuals, families, schools, churches, organizations and businesses throughout the year. We are also a proud member of the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and The Food Pantries for the Capital District.
