Compassion Coalition is an independent not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. It is the first and only food warehouse that solicits, collects and distributes food in the Utica, Rome and Mohawk Valley areas to alleviate hunger in the community. A 36,000 square foot warehouse located at 509 Lafayette St., Utica, NY was donated to the organization by a local businessman. It started its full-time operation in March 2000. As you will soon see, Compassion Coalition has grown in size and is now helping to keep food on the table for those in need.(Taken from www.Compassion-Coalition.com)
