Food Pantry Always Needs

Please leave these in room 16:

Instant Coffee Tea Cereal Oatmeal Pasta
Spaghetti sauce Peanut butter Soup Cookies Crackers
Paper products Toothpaste Soap Diapers Personal hygiene products
Plastic bags (grocery size)

We also need plastic bags – grocery size. Bring to room 2.

Your monetary contributions are also appreciated

We “shop” at Food Bank of Westchester where a dollar will buy more food than you can imagine, thanks to government and corporate donations. We have a “matching” Trust Fund that will double the effectiveness of every dollar we donate to the Food Pantry. Let’s make good use of this wonderful gift.

A Food Pantry Success Story

A young man named Chris, who came to the food pantry every week for over six months, came to see us recently. We had not seen him since June. He returned to say he’d found a job. He brought us a bag of groceries, and a check. He wanted to “give back” because “without your help I don’t know how I world have survived my months of unemployment.”
