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.

“At Club Fit we believe that one way to keep people active is to create a strong social connection between members. These social interactions help motivate people to work out more. Events like this allow our members to reward themselves for their hard work throughout the year while also strengthening the bonds they have created with those around them. Partnering with The Community Food Pantry at St. Mary’s was a perfect way for us to give back to a community which has shown us so much support over our 45 year history of helping people live a healthier life.” -Bill Beck, President
