our work


Since the Community Center first opened its doors in 1992, over 30 years ago, it has been providing food, clothing and job skills support to its neighbors in need. Today the food market remains at the core of the Center, but the range of services we offer has greatly expanded.  We continually seek to identify and assess the changing needs and resources of the community and modify our programs to best meet these needs. 

In addition to providing food and clothing for thousands of households across more than 38 communities in Northern Westchester, we also offer a hub of resources under one roof to improve a family's stability and financial security. We work directly with our clients to assist them in gaining access to other community resources, including health care, education, and social services.

Our services are offered free of charge to all who need help -- new arrivals, as well as residents who have deep roots in the community.
