2023 by the Numbers
Hunger is a problem that affects those in all communities, sometimes those you expect the least. The Westchester Food Pantry serves as a resource throughout the year for those who are hungry and food insecure.
For calendar year ended December 31, 2023, the Pantry served 5,995 client households, or nearly 18,000 individuals. This represents a 22% increase over last year, and a 100% increase as compared to 2021. This past September, 485 clients came through the Pantry’s doors to receive food, another new monthly high. Fifty percent of our clients were new clients to the pantry in 2023.
Free groceries, household supplies, and pet food are available for those in need once a month at the Pantry.
We are supported by the generous donations of residents and businesses within our community. Your donations directly keep food on the tables of families in need.
We are blessed to have so many volunteers assist the Pantry. Explore our volunteer opportunities to see how you or your organization can help.
