A MESSAGE TO OUR DONORS
Dear Friends of The Ossining Food Pantry,
We continue to find ourselves in the midst of uncertain times. Well before the COVID-19 pandemic, many people were already choosing between nutritious food for their family and paying rent. Over the past 16 months, the Ossining Food Pantry saw our client base triple from 400 households to well over 1,000 households.
Support for Families in Need
At the outbreak of the pandemic in March 2020, we shifted our client support from in-person food distribution to mailing C-Town gift cards and Farmers Market vouchers. This approach minimized client/volunteer interactions thereby protecting all involved.
These gift cards and vouchers represented a significant financial commitment by the Ossining Food Pantry to help feed over 1,000 client households.
Effective July, we will return to in-person distribution of coupons at Trinity Church. We are tentatively planning to shift away from coupons and return to distribution of food in the early fall.
For now, we will continue to provide C-Town gift cards and Farmers Market coupons on a monthly basis to those who come to Trinity. We will continue to partner with Feeding Westchester to operate a mobile food pantry. We will also continue to provide pre-packed bags of food which are distributed every Tuesday at Trinity Church (7 So. Highland Ave) Noon-2PM.
A Community Pulling Together
Thanks to people like you, we will continue to offer coupon and food assistance to Ossining area residents who need help feeding their families.
We are an all volunteer organization, with no paid staff. Nearly every dollar raised goes to direct food assistance.
Many of our neighbors continue to need help feeding their families.
The Need is Great. Please help.

We wish the best of everything for our donors, volunteers and for the clients we serve.
The Ossining Food Pantry is an equal opportunity provider
