The Lunch Box, our community meal program, provides a hot lunch and dinner for anyone within Dutchess County who needs a delicious chef-prepared meal. The Lunch Box is open for in-person dining and to-go options are still available.

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



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

Our Lunch Box is coordinated by our Lunch Box Executive Chef and Lunch Box Assistant Manger. 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.
