Help in these

Uncertain Times!


Community Food Pantry will continue to  distribute food to our clients  twice a month on:

October 8 and 22 

8:15 am to 10:30am

6pm to 7pm

Please follow New York State Requirements: Wear a mask,   Keep 6 ft of distance between you and the next person in line. In addition, we are limiting our staffing so we can also follow these guidelines so your patience is greatly appreciated.

Be safe, be well. Wash your hands when you get home!

 We so appreciate the generosity of our donors, individuals and civic organizations, who have made these extra distributions possible for the next several weeks. Some are listed at our new webpage, COVID RESPONSES.

Every dollar you give us goes directly to healthy food for a local family in need!

Each distribution costs about $6000.

And because we purchase from the Food Bank, your financial contributions to us have much greater purchasing power!


Who We Serve

We provide food to the hungry in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, proportional to family size.


How We Help

We are a healthy choice 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 and fourth Thursday of each month, from 8:30  to 10:30 AM and from 6 to 7  PM.  If schools are closed for weather, we reschedule usually to the next day -- 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.  If you would like to run a food drive or donate food items, please consult the list of items we need.  Also, please note that we do not accept opened or expired goods.

Will your corporation match your gift?  Double your impact!


We are a non-denominational public charity, a 501 (c) 3 corporation. 






Items we are collecting

And New Drop off Site!

We so appreciate the generosity of food donations, but they can no longer be accepted at the front of the church. They've become an attractive nuisance to pests, and are vulnerable to the weather.


THANKS to the Tarrytown Village Hall!  They are happy to receive donations for us in their lobby at One Depot Plaza, near the train station.  Just call 914-631-7873 for hours and entry. With donations from food drives, call Rachelle at (914) 332-0182 to arrange to have the pantry opened.

These specific items our clients need.  Bear in mind:  please do not buy very large packages -- we cannot break them apart.  Instead, packaging size appropriate for a family of four for the week.


We cannot accept baby food, nutritional supplements or opened/expired packages.

Healthy Cereal

shelf stable milk

The Westchester Community Foundation is one of our most significant sources of financial support, with a grant of $15,000.  

Their generosity alone covers our operating costs for more than two distributions!

The Kids' Club continues as a major supporter of the Pantry, providing $13,000 this year, including an additional grant to serve the needs of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The USDA provides about $15,000 in aide per year in grants through Feeding Westchester food bank.  This includes the  Green Thumb program, which provides fresh vegetables, and lines of credit for us with Feeding Westchester, which we use to buy food for the pantry.

Christ Church in Tarrytown is our distribution site and served as one of our founding partners.  Their rector is on our board, and church members are among our volunteers.
