Our Longest Running Program

The Beverly Closs Food Pantry provides a three-day emergency supply of food for the entire household. Last year alone more than 84,000 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 moms and dads to help feed their babies when money’s tight. We not only supply food, but can provide personal hygiene items; toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, shavers, and other necessities.
