Community coming together helping families in need
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.
ONSITE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNIES CURRENTLY LIMITED AND RESTRICTED. PLEASE CONTACT FOR MORE DETAILS.
