Dobbs Ferry Pantry

Following the spread of the novel coronavirus in early 2020, we saw an immediate increase in families in need in our area. In fact, the Dobbs Ferry Pantry experienced a rapid doubling, and then tripling, of families in need -- while donations and sources of bulk goods dried up. We decided to work with the Pantry to help meet their need, donating time, talent, and kitchen, delivering fresh baked bread and nutritious soups weekly from April through July. We continue to purchase and repackage bulk dry goods, for as long as needed. And we'll be pitching in to cook, too, whenever we can. Please join us by supporting the purchase of dry goods -- we cannot do it without you!

What does your gift cover?

Your gift does not cover overhead or any of the costs of running our kitchen or go toward pay of any kind. Chef volunteers time, talent, and the kitchen. Your gift covers the cost of ingredients, packaging, labels, and credit card processing fees. It takes an average of approximately $160 per week to make soup and bread for families served by the Pantry. It also takes about 20 hours of the Chef's time, including shopping, cooking & baking, packaging, delivery, and clean up. A gift in the virtual tip jar is always welcome. Thank you for your generosity!
