Philipstown Food Pantry
Donate to the Food Pantry! Your generous gift will help us purchase food for local families.
Make a difference in your own community!
Volunteer at the Philipstown Food Pantry or make a generous donation!
Join us on a Saturday morning from 9 to 10 AM to see your local Food Pantry in action --
right here at The First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown!
There are more than 50 families registered at the Food Pantry.
Local residents learn about the Philipstown Food Pantry in various ways:
through the Department of Social Services, through friends and neighbors,
reading ads and newspaper articles,
and also when they notice the "Food Pantry Shopping List" at Foodtown,
our grocery store in Cold Spring.
Would you like to help your community in a meaningful way? Here's how!
(1) Volunteer! Lend a helping hand at the Philipstown Food Pantry on a Saturday morning. Join us in setting up the pantry. We'll provide assistance to those needing help or searching for a particular item. When the Food Pantry closes, we work together to put away the food that is left and to refill the Food Pantry carts for the next week.
(2) Donate food! The Food Pantry is always very happy to have receive donations of fresh, frozen, packaged and canned foods to supplement grocery supplies for the families we serve. Contact us with any questions about helpful food items to contribute. Note: The Philipstown Food Pantry has a Facebook Page! We often post about items we especially need, and you can also send messages or make a financial contribution!
(3) Sponsor a Youth Food Drive for the Pantry! Does your child or grandchild participate in a youth organization such as Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts, a 4-H club, sports teams, confirmation class, bar/bat mitzvah class, or other youth group? For youth or school groups seeking ways to provide community service, a Food Drive is a fantastic project. Please contact us for information and we will be glad to help!
(4) Make a financial contribution! Fight hunger in your own community. The Philipstown Food Pantry is a mission run by volunteers. Your donation will help us keep the pantry shelves stocked and our service running smoothly to better serve families in need.
There is a gold "Donate" button on the top of this page.
