KINGSTON – Since Ulster County Executive Patrick Ryan created Project Resilience last month, the effort has served over 13,000 meals to those in need.

Since it began, 1,854 individuals and households have requested assistance, 13,715 meals have been delivered, 13,715 meals have been delivered, 16 local teams have been established to distribute meals in 22 municipalities and 128 restaurants have signed up.

The county secured over $2 million in initial funding within 24 hours of announcing the project and has raised close to $100,000 from grassroots donors in the community through GoFundMe.

“With over 10,000 meals served, and hundreds of volunteers and partners, Project Resilience has shown what the wave of goodwill from across Ulster County can do,” said Ryan.
