Our Food Pantry provides FREE groceries for the entire household. Last year alone more than 123,600 meals were provided to 9,342 people in Dutchess County, including more than 4,000 children. We’re here every day if needed with no restrictions. We not only supply food, but provide personal hygiene items; toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, shavers, and other necessities.

Thanks to Nourish New York, The Pantry is more consistently able to provide FRESH NEW YORK STATE GROWN vegetables, fruit, and dairy.


Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

The Pantry is closed on Wednesdays!
