The Food Bank is on the move…
This Friday, December 9, our offices will be closed as our administrative staff moves to a larger facility at 200 Clearbrook Road, Elmsford, NY 10523. Our telephone number will stay the same, (914) 923-1100, as will our fax number (914) 923-1198. Our website remains www.foodbankforwestchester.org.
Our warehouse staff and functions will remain in Millwood, NY until the end of January when renovations and equipping of the new warehouse in Elmsford are complete.
If you have donated to the Lanza Challenge — thank you! You have helped us unlock the door to the larger warehouse that will allow us to get more food out to Westchester children, seniors and their families who are hungry or at risk of hunger.
If you haven’t donated yet, there is still time! Every dollar donated will be matched by generous philanthropist Pat Lanza. The Lanza Challenge runs to January, and we still need to raise $225,000 to meet the challenge! Donate now.
