Help Us Win the Ulster County Food Fight

Food Fight 2022

Please check all expiration dates on food packages.

The Ulster County Food Fight is an annual food collection contest held in cooperation with twelve libraries throughout Ulster County from Thursday, September 1 to Friday, October 15.

The “Food Fight” is part of the Great Give Back that is happening on October 15th throughout New York State.

The common goal is to “spread food all over Ulster County” by filling up the shelves of local food pantries and to putting an end to hunger in our communities. The library that collects the highest number of food items during this period wins the Food Fight and receives a winners’ certificate!

Help your library win the Food Fight with your donations of non-perishable (and non-expired) food items for local food pantries. It sounds like a messy fight, but this is a clean competition with other libraries in Ulster County.
