The Lunch Box, our community meal program, provides a hot lunch and dinner 5 days a week for anyone who needs one within Dutchess County. Open Monday-Friday and on most holidays to ensure that all Poughkeepsie residents are able to enjoy a delicious prepared from scratch meal.

We are committed to providing complete and nutritious meals for all individuals, sourcing a majority of our ingredients from our own urban farm as well as from other local Hudson Valley farms.



Last year, The Lunch Box provided over 88,800 meals.

Our Lunch Box is coordinated by our Lunch Box Manager and Lunch Box Program assistant. They help to ensure its smooth daily operations, coordinate the ordering and donation of foods, and manage volunteers.  

The Lunch Box heavily relies on volunteers such as athletes and clubs, local residents and churches, and more. Volunteers help us procure, prep, cook, and serve meals.
