The Leadership Capital Region Class of 2023 is hoping to tackle food insecurity.

The group is teaming up with the Connect Center – a community hub for connection and empowerment for youth development programs in Cohoes.

The partnership will complete a community outreach renewal and expansion project. That project will provide much needed renovations and upgrades to the Connect Center’s food storage, food pantry and backpack program packing area.

The class will work to bring Connect Center’s spaces up to standards to become a member of the Food Pantries of the Capital District and increase the number of families served through the pantry and backpack program.
