Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry

Fact: one in five residents in Westchester County is food insecure. According to the USDA's definition, food-insecure families do not have "access at all times to enough food for active, healthy living."  By providing monthly supplemental food, the Community Center of Northern Westchester helped to fill this gap for over 3,000 families in more than 38 Northern Westchester communities during 2022.

  • We are currently following our choice pantry model, where our families can shop for their food and chose the items they would like from our pantry shelves. Each family is offered fresh fruits & vegetables, meat & eggs in addition to shelf-stable canned and dry goods. We also provide essential toiletries such as Depends, feminine hygiene products, diapers and wipes to those who need. 
  • For our local seniors or those with underlying health issues, our dedicated volunteers are providing home delivery of food and essential supplies.
  • We are communicating with other food pantries and agencies to coordinate resources and ensure that the growing needs of those who have been impacted by COVID and the high costs of food and gas are being met.

If you or someone you know needs support please visit our food pantry during our regular hours: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Fridays 10AM - 4PM, Thursdays 12PM - 6PM, and Saturdays 10AM - 1PM.

We welcome and depend on donations of food to help stock our Food Pantry. Click here to see where and when to donate food, and to see what foods we now need the most.

“I only come here when I really need the help...I take only what I need…the children need it more than me. The people are very nice here, and I feel very comfortable here, very much at home.”
