(WBNG) -- Ithaca Kitchen Cupboard is this week's winner of a two-thousand dollar grant from Upstate Shredding through Southern Tier Tuesdays.
The non-profit is an all-volunteer based pantry who distributes around 10,000 pounds of food each week -- and have been doing so for over 50 years.
The organization's volunteers are made up from about 24 congregations of faith communities in or around Ithaca.
Volunteers from the Ithaca Kitchen Cupboard expressed gratitude for the grant, adding that it can help their efforts significantly.
"$2,000 can buy 4 [to] 5 thousand pounds of food," explained Joan Barber, Volunteer Coordinator.
Barber added that the grant will also help them buy more supplies like packaging and bags.
Ithaca Kitchen Cupboard is open every weekday. Monday through Thursday, it is open from 1:30 to 3pm and from 1 to 2:30pm on Friday's. It is located at 150 North Albany St. (located within The Salvation Amy Worship Center).
To get in contact with the organization, you can follow along on their Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or at 607.280.4776.
