Community coming together helping families in need

Many thanks to all the helping hands that made the pantry Christmas Distribution a success!  Whether you donated food or a toy or sent monies for us to use or maybe you even packed a food bag or a toy bag, it all happened because we worked together.  259 families received a turkey or a ham and all the fixings for albeit a quiet but sumptuous feast.  The evening before food distribution, toys were distributed to 465 children.  So with your support, maybe we were able to bring some comfort and joy to the many who come to pantry door.

Let us hope that this New Year brings some peace and some relief for us all.

Wishing each and every one you a year of good health and many shared moments of joy and wonder.

The Community Food Pantry at St. Mary's Mohegan Lake

Youths Helping Out

Our young friends Trevor (13) and Travis (12) Reigle created a different kind of advent calendar, one that had them add a donation of food to a box for each day of advent. Advent this year was 26 days. Trevor and his brother hand delivered the boxes of food to pantry.  This was Trevor’s creative way of meeting community service requirements for his upcoming Confirmation. The family so enjoyed the experience that they hope to make it a family tradition.  We are so grateful and we have so much hope for the future because of kids like Trevor and Travis. Thank you boys!

Our Mission


The Food Pantry at St. Mary’s Mohegan Lake is an interfaith community based not for profit service organization staffed by volunteers. Our mission is to provide supplemental food to families or individuals who live in the Mohegan Lake and greater Yorktown – Cortlandt area. We seek to provide nutritional, health and referral information to facilitate our patrons in moving beyond the need for emergency food.
