MALONE –– More than two dozen low-income and elderly households that might have been facing food insecurity because of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak received on Thursday a week’s worth of food –– almost all of it grown or made locally.

AdkAction, a Saranac Lake-based nonprofit organization, in partnership with the local-food promotion group The Hub on the Hill, delivered emergency food packages to the Malone Village Offices on Wednesday for redistribution to those in need in the community. The packages contained roughly a week’s worth of food –– eggs, bread, apples, healthy snacks, yogurt, greens, granola, soup, and two trays of frozen entrees –– that was purchased from eastern Adirondack farms and packed by paid local labor at the Hub on the Hill in Essex.
