Every November we spend an extra $4000 to make our clients' Thanksgiving distributions more plentiful. We need and appreciate your generous contributions!
HELPING THE HUNGRY
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 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 contact us for a list of items we need. Also, please note that we do not accept opened or expired goods.
We are a non-denominational public charity, a 501 (c) 3 corporation.
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 months!
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.
The Kids' Club continues as a major supporter of the Pantry, providing a year-end contribution of $10,000!
