Recognizing growing food insecurity amongst neighbors, local resident, John Sharpe, in partnership with the Westchester Family YMCA and support of the Rotary Club of Westchester will be launching our 1st Community Pantry February 8th for anyone in need. The pantry is both functional and artful, thanks to the work of local muralist, David Russell.

If you’d like to support the pantry, donations can be dropped off Monday – Friday from 9am to 2pm at the Westchester Family YMCA where the Community Pantry will be located. Some food items that are needed:
canned goods, pop-tops preferred (meat, tuna, vegetables, fruits, soups), rice, pasta, grains, dried fruit, peanut/almond butter, cereal, granola bars, nuts, crackers, healthy snacks, shelf-stable/powered milk, spices, tea bags, and coffee.

Please be mindful: No Glass Packaging

Volunteers will clean and stock the Community Pantry daily. Join us in welcoming this service project to our community. For more information, contact John Sharpe at
