Feeding Westchester

Hunger is here—right where we live

Children and adults from all walks of life go hungry, in every communityincluding yours.

Your neighbor, your child’s classmate, or even your coworker may struggle to get enough to eat—or to eat healthy. And you may have no idea.

Food security changes lives

Health

Not having access to healthy food affects people’s physical, developmental, and mental health. Food is integral to surviving—and thriving.

Peace of mind

Many households that experience food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs. A local food bank or the help offered through other food programs is often the extra assistance someone needs.

Success

When children have enough to eat, they will be healthier and better equipped for academic and social success – strengthening the present and future of our community.

Advocating

for hunger relief

Together, we raise awareness about hunger, advocate for policies and programs that support food security in our community, and speak out against policies that make it harder for our hungry neighbors to access the food they need.

Dorothy, Ossining Resident

Hunger is here—right where we live

Everyone’s struggle looks different

A 28-year-old single mother, Dorothy attends a Mobile Food Pantry distribution to receive meals for herself and her 6-year-old son. While working and pursuing her nursing degree, Dorothy struggles to do it all—she, like many, does not qualify for federal nutrition assistance programs, and has significant medical bills from two years of frequent hospital visits after her son was born prematurely. Still, she has hope, calling the Mobile Food Pantry a blessing that has helped keep her and her family afloat.
Together we feed for a better tomorrow.

Turning every donation into fresh food for our community

Make a donation now to help us provide food to those who need it most

Although many in Westchester are wealthy, wages remain low and stagnant for the working poor, and the cost of living continues to rise. With fixed expenses like rent and childcare, groceries are often the first family expense to be cut. Join the fight against hunger by becoming a monthly donor or by giving a one-time donation.
