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.
Young Volunteers Helping Out
Thanks go out to Craig Caravello and his friends for their kind act helping out the food pantry. You can read the full story about Craig on our Testimonial page here.
Community coming together helping families in need
Easter is around the corner and the pantry is gearing up. We are serving on average 110 families each week and when it is a holiday distribution that number can double. 400 Easter Baskets were distributed last year and 185 families received a bountiful meal to share with loved ones. It is with your help that the pantry is able to reach so many.
Hams, turkeys and the fixings for a festive meal are needed. So look for those sales. Donations of Easter goodies for children age 12 and under will be greatly appreciated. Donations may be dropped off at St. Mary’s during church office hours, Tuesday and Friday between the hours of 9:30 am and 2 am. (Please alert the office by calling 914-528-3972), Saturday mornings between 8 am and 11 am -or even the day of the set-up. Set-up will be Friday, April 7th, between 3pm and 5 pm. Distribution will be the following day, Saturday, April 8th. Since it is a very busy set-up and distribution and we have the safety of our volunteers in mind, we ask that all volunteers be 13 years of age or older. Younger volunteers accompanied by an adult are welcome any other time. Thank you for understanding.
