Taghkanic Community Fridge
A community-sponsored program
The fridge is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can't
miss it - the cheery yellow building sits
alongside the back door of Town Hall. The fridge and pantry are stocked with all manner of foods,
including meals prepared by West Taghkanic Diner and Columbia County Recovery Kitchen.
There are many ways for folks to get involved. We welcome food donations - click on image to download full-size PDF of Guidelines. If you'd like to join our brigade of fridge volunteers and help manage, clean and stock the fridge, please contact Betsy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Donations made directly to the Fridge (either through VENMO (@taghkanicfridge) or by dropping a donation in the box inside Town Hall) are NOT tax deductible. However, if you'd like your donation to be tax deductible, OR if you have a matching donation program through your employer and would like to double your impact, you can make a donation to the Purpose Cooperative. The Purpose Cooperative is a 501c3 through which we receive our Shared Plate stipend. You can send a check to Purpose Cooperative, 95 Main Street #546, Philmont, NY 12565 and ask that it be earmarked for the Taghkanic Fridge.
Town Hall gets Heat Pumps
In June this year (2022) the Town Board voted to install heat pumps in the Taghkanic Town Hall, which at the time was served by oil-based heating and window air conditioning units. The work involved the installation of a total of 4 Mitsubishi air-source heat pumps, two upstairs and two downstairs. See full article.
Community Solar Campaign
The Taghkanic Climate-Smart Task Force sponsored a campaign from November 2021 through the end of January 2022 to encourage town residents to sign up for community solar. It was designed to benefit residents, who were to receive a Visa gift card for signing up, and once assigned to an existing solar farm were assured an annual savings of around 10% on their electric bill. The results of the campaign were well beyond our expectations, with Taghkanic residents signing up for 45 (official tally) new community solar accounts. The town, for its efforts, will receive $3950 from Ampion, and an additional $5000 grant from NYSERDA to be used in future climate/conservation-related programs. Thanks to all who participated in this small but important contribution to New York State's effort to move away from a reliance on fossil fuels and toward sustainable resources of electrical power.
