Mission Statement

The mission of the Food Bank for Westchester is to lead, engage and educate Westchester County in creating a hunger-free environment. The Food Bank for Westchester serves over 265 local hunger-relief programs throughout Westchester, including food pantries, soup kitchens, child and adult day-care centers, and shelters. The Food Bank provides 95% of all the food given to hungry families, children and seniors as cooked meals or groceries to take home.

Description

The Food Bank for Westchester, one of eight food banks in New York State, acquires, warehouses and distributes more than seven million pounds of food annually to 220 frontline hunger-relief organizations, including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, day care and residential programs. In early 2012, the Food Bank moved to a larger facility at 200 Clearbrook Road, Elmsford 10523 to get more food out to more hungry people in Westchester. The Food Bank’s mission is to lead, engage and educate Westchester County residents in creating a hunger-free environment. The Food Bank for Westchester is a certified member of the Feeding America network.
