Our Longest Running Program

29 North Hamilton Street, Suite 220
Poughkeepsie, NY

Our Food Pantry provides a five-day supply of FREE groceries for the entire household. Last year alone more than 87,000 meals were provided to 9,342 people in Dutchess County, including more than 3,000 children. We’re here every day if needed with no restrictions on family size. We have formula for parents to help feed their babies when money is tight. We not only supply food, but can 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.
