Info about the food pantry….
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, as well as people from the neighboring towns of Ardsley and Irvington. We also serve people from Greenburgh. However, the Pantry is open to and serves everyone who expresses need, regardless of religious belief, affiliation or income level.
The church currently provides the space free of charge. Our staff is 100% volunteer. 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 Wednesday from 10am to noon. On the last Wednesday of the month we are also open from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. On average, we serve 30-35 families--approximately 125 individuals, many of whom are young children.
