In an average week, the Food Pantry provides non-perishable food items to supplement the nutritional needs of approximately 200 households. That's 400-500 people - men, women & children - who are helped each week by your generous donations. Some of our food is donated. Much is purchased from the Food Bank for Westchester and ShopRite.
Food is distributed from a variety of locations and programs:
Client Choice Pantry at Trinity Church: A choice pantry allows families the
dignity of choosing their own food. Since families choose what they like t
here is less wasted food. Clients may come to the Pantry twice each month.
Home Delivery Program: Volunteers deliver pre-packed bags of food, twice each month, to clients who are unable to come to Trinity.
Agency Delivery Program: Volunteers distribute pre-packed bags of groceries to qualified families from Ossining Children's Center and St. Matthew's Day Care.
Emergency Food Assistance: Emergency assistance is available.
Food Bank Mobile Pantry: The Mobile Pantry at Star of Bethlehem Church distributes meat, dairy and produce twice each month.
