Are there any places to donate non-perishable food items in the Albany area? I've tried online and only found the regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY, but looks like they take things from companies and not individuals.
I've seen collection boxes for non-perishable food donations at Ohav Shalom synagogue in Albany. I've also seen a collection box at the Albany JCC. Perhaps other religious institutions have these boxes set up for local distribution to needy families.
