In February we are asking for canned tomatoes. These are among our most popular items and often not available at our “grocery store” — Feeding Westchester.
When the Deacons suggest an “item of the month,” it’s not just some suggestion from a rotating calendar, it’s actually something that has not been available from Feeding Westchester. As you know, we now have a Full Choice model at the Food Pantry, where our clients can choose items that best fulfill the needs of their household. We buy food in bulk from Feeding Westchester, but not all the items we’d like to offer are always available.
Noting the item of the month and bringing in some supplies can help the pantry offer as wide a variety of foods as possible. Just place the items in the basket in the Gathering Space.
