  • Overview

    *No Walkins Accepted! Signups ONLY!*

    In previous years, we've hosted dinner giveaways during the holiday season. As we relocated last year, and took the year to get ourselves established here in the Capital Region, we're now ready to being hosting events, and bringing the community together. CGM was based in Buffalo, NY for over ten years as a sector of International Church For All People. We worked feverishly to serve the community and beyond. Reaching all the way to Kisi Kenya, we held food and supplies drives, and were able to send countless boxes of supplies to feed the hungry, orphans, and many in the area. We also sent school supplies, Bibles, and literature.

    This year, CGM will be serving the needy and those who may otherwise go hungry during this holiday season. We will be giving away bag of food with everything you'll need to prepare a Christmas meal; ie turkey, canned veggies, etc. We're also offering to options: pick up or delivery. Recipients will have the option to pick up their bag from the Crossgates Mall (more details coming soon) during a specified time slot, or, one of our volunteers will bring you the meal bag right to your door! 

    When you sign up to receive a meal bag, be sure to indicate if you'll be want pick up or delivery. Each sign up is per family, not individual. Our meals will feed a family of 5. Please be advised: an adult, 18 years old or older must be present to pickup or receive your meal bag. Finally, you will receive a confirmation email and a follow up email (in the coming weeks) that will ask you to confirm your address, your choice between pickup and delivery, time slot, and number of bags needed. (Sign up opens November 29th, 2022)

    Interested in volunteering? We need drivers to deliver meals! For more information head to our website and click on the volunteers tab. (Sign up begins December 1, 2022)
