Help in these Uncertain Times!
Due to these difficult times, the Community Food Pantry will be having a supplemental distribution of food to our clients on:
Thursday, March 26
8:15 am to 10:30am
6pm to 7pm
Please follow CDC health guidelines and provide 6ft of distance between you and the next person. In addition, we are limiting our staffing so we can also follow these guidelines so your patience is greatly appreciated.
Be safe, be well.
This extra distribution costs approximately $3000. We so appreciate our donors...can you help?
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.
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!
The Kids' Club continues as a major supporter of the Pantry, providing a year-end contribution of $10,000!
