Belmont, NY – When Allegany County Democrats meet for their monthly “Coffee with Democrats” gatherings, they bring food and personal care items to support the host community’s food pantries.  This is one of the ways the committee lives its motto: “Serving our Community”.

The most recent gathering was held last week in Canaseraga, which has two pantries: one at Larger Parish Church and one at Masters Tabernacle Church.

“Our food pantry is small but growing,” states Larger Parish Church volunteer Doreen Bacon, “thanks to generous donations given by groups such as yours. God bless.” The pantry at 20 Pratt St. is open the first and third Tuesday of every month from 9 AM to noon.  Call 607-545-8631 for more information.

The Masters Tabernacle pantry is located at 29 N. Church St. and is open the first Saturday of every month from 9 AM to Noon and the third Wednesday of every month from 6 PM to 8 PM. It offers emergency food boxes to those who need it. The church also offers a free clothing and hygiene pantry to the community, which is open the second and fourth Thursday of every month from 10 AM to Noon.  In addition, the church organizes a monthly Pop-Up Pantry in collaboration with Foodlink. More than a hundred families are served, and volunteers are needed one day a month. Contact food pantry director Melissa Omans at (585) 443-9467.  

Ms. Omans had this to say, “We cannot thank the Allegany County Democratic Committee enough for your donations of food and hygiene products for our pantry.  You truly blessed us so we can continue to bless others.”

The next “Coffee with Democrats” will take place on Sat., April 13th in Cuba, NY.  Please contact us for details at 585-610-4321 or, or by Facebook or Threads
