We raised $35,000,
enough to provide two months of food
for our neighbors!

Because of expanded services for Covid, our current costs are about $15,000 per month.
And because we purchase in bulk, your financial contributions to us have much greater purchasing power!

HELPING THE HUNGRY
Who We Serve
We provide food to the hungry in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown.
How We Help
We do our best to be a healthy pantry, because our clients want to follow their doctors' guidelines . We provide frozen meat, dry beans and grains, fresh vegetables, and other important staples.
When We Open
Our distributions are the second Thursday of each month, from 8:15 to 10:30 AM and from 6 to 7 PM. If schools are closed or delayed for weather, we reschedule to the next day, from 8:15 to 10:30 AM with no evening distribution. -- check Facebook.
How We Do It
We are supported entirely by volunteers, with financial contributions and food donations from synagogues, churches, community organizations, foundations and individuals. Monetary donations are most helpful, because we can then purchase items our clients need. But food items from our list are also welcome. Also, please note that we do not accept baby food, baby formula, nutritional supplements, opened or expired goods.
