“This morning, I joined the team at The Community Pantry to learn how they are preparing to serve our region this holiday season and feed hungry families across Delaware County. The good folks at the food pantry are doing critically important work to provide for the most vulnerable in our society,” said Rep. Delgado. “In this season of giving, I am inspired by the community organizations that are going above and beyond to meet the needs of struggling families in NY-19. I’m glad to see how the pantry has adapted to expand their services throughout the pandemic. I’ll keep working at the federal level to ensure future coronavirus relief legislation includes state and local funding, distributed through my Direct Support for Communities Act, so our food pantries have the resources they need to provide for our area.”

“The Community Pantry really appreciates the opportunity to connect Rep. Antonio Delgado today and discuss how our pantry is providing for the working poor and the elderly in our area. Our conversation focused on a variety of needs in our region including supporting mental health and addiction, assisting small farmers, and federal funding that will allow us to continue to build a healthy and prosperous community,” said Joyce St. George, Coordinator, The Community Pantry.

In October, Rep. Delgado voted to pass an updated version of the Heroes Act which includes a number of priorities championed by the Congressman to bring urgently needed assistance to communities across New York’s 19th Congressional District. The text has Rep. Delgado’s bipartisan Direct Support for Communities Act, which creates a distribution formula for state and local funding to ensure that all localities, regardless of size, receive direct federal support. The bill also includes Rep. Delgado’s Small Business Debt Relief Extension Act to automatically extend repayment measures for qualified SBA loans, as well as his Prioritized Paycheck Protection Program or P4 Actwhich allows the hardest hit businesses to apply for additional PPP funding.
