he Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry has been serving the Rivertowns since 2011 by providing food in an accessible area for all citizens in need. We rely on charitable donations to feed the 100+ families that rely on us. Ultimately, we hope to help ease the burden of those in need by providing them with the food they need to help them focus on the futures they want.

The Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry at South Presbyterian Church opened its doors in January 2011 in response to the growing demand for food assistance in Dobbs Ferry, New York as well as people from the neighboring villages of Ardsley, Hastings-on-Hudson and Irvington. However, the Pantry is open to and serves everyone who expresses need, regardless of residency status, religious belief or affiliation.

The church currently provides the space free of charge. Our staff is 100% volunteer. So all of the money donated to the pantry is used to purchase items that go directly to those who need assistance.

The pantry is open every Wednesdays from 10am to noon. On average, we serve 40 families–approximately 145 individuals, many of whom are young children and seniors. As our donation base increased this year, we have added evening hours – once a month on the last Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7pm.

The South Presbyterian Church sponsors the Food Pantry as an offshoot of its Hunger Ministries. It is 501(c)(3) organization. So contributions and donations are fully tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Volunteers and donors are both members and non-members.

It is run by a coalition of about 25 community members from Dobbs Ferry, Hastings on Hudson and Ardsley.

We are authorized members of the Food Bank for Westchester. The Food Bank allows us to purchase food for the pantry at a lower cost than ordinarily obtained from a grocery store.
