Concerned for the Hungry, Inc. is a volunteer organization working to fight hunger in Schenectady County, New York. CFH was started by a small group of individuals in 1979. It began with the realization that the need for emergency food was growing. After 32 years, CFH remains a leading force in providing essential food services throughout the county. Our Thanksgiving Food Drive alone, feeds more than 10,000 residents of Schenectady County. Our support for the Backpack Program, provides local elementary school students with a backpack full of food each friday, to ensure that they won't go hungry over the weekend. In addition, CFH coordinates and distrubutes Emergency Food & Shelter Funding to the Schenectady County Food pantries, ensuring continued operation and supoort for those in need.
