Food Pantry


The Church operates a “full-choice” food pantry on two Saturday mornings each month, usually on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.  Adults and teenagers are invited to join us at 8am to help organize the food, help clients choose, and help recipients carry bags to their cars.

Our Beyond Hunger / Pantry-plus initiative recognizes that necessary household expenses like hygiene products (for all ages, including diapers and incontinence supplies) and school supplies reduce the funds available for nutrition. Your ongoing financial support of Pantry-Plus enables all of these ministries. We are also grateful for Item of the Month food donations to fill gaps in our ability to offer balanced food choices to our clients, and for diaper, elder care and school supply donations or coupons.

We have begun the distribution / offering of elder care products (Ensure protein drinks and several kinds of incontinence products) to our Pantry clients, as well as to our Beaver Ridge delivery clients. We have begun providing food and elder care supplies to the Wynwood Oaks facility in Shrub Oak as well, enabled by partnership with the Senior Nutrition Center in Yorktown and a grant from the Field Hall Foundation.

We shop at Feeding 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. You can easily give electronically, and use the “Food Pantry Plus” line, or you can write “Food Pantry” on the memo line of your check and use the offering plate.
