WHO ARE THE PANTRY’S LEADERS
For the first six months of 2022, ended June 30, the Pantry served about 1,900 client households, or 6,100 individuals. This is a 52% increase over the same period in 2021. Our clients were provided with 75 tons of food, which equates to 125,000 meals at a retail value of $750,000. Each client receives over $350 worth of groceries, every time they come to the Pantry.
In June, the Pantry served 368 clients households. As more community outreach is done, this number will continue to grow.
Many activities happened in 2021. Some of them have already taken place, or are planned for, this year. Please see the slides from Westchester Food Pantry’s January 6, 2022 Annual Meeting. Click HERE
