On any Wednesday morning, clients of the Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry step into a world that we’ve created together—volunteers helping clients, folks dropping off donations, and people in need of food looking out for each other.     

We first welcomed our Dobbs Ferry neighbors in 2011, as well as residents of Ardsley and Irvington, which do not have food pantries. We also help families who live in a pocket of Greenburgh (10502, 10503, 10522, 10533, 10607). If you need food and do not live in the area we serve, you’ll find a pantry here.

Our pantry is located at South Presbyterian Church in Dobbs Ferry, which sponsors us and provides the space we use for free. We also depend on the support of Feeding Westchester, a member of Feeding America, a nonprofit network of 200 food banks in the U.S. and the largest domestic hunger-relief organization.

Volunteers staff our pantry, and donations of money and food help feed our neighbors—all monetary donations are tax deductible. We serve about 100 families a week, but for roughly 18 months of the pandemic we helped up to 150 families, around 600 people each week. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, age, and disability.


The pantry is open every Wednesday from 10:30 to noon, and the last Wednesday of every month from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. We deliver food to those people in need who can’t get to the pantry due to a disability or an illness.

  1. I can bring donated food – macaroni and cheese, beans, canned tomatoes, pasta. Please let me know if you need items.


    1. Jodie, thank you so much for offering to bring food. Can you bring shelf-stable food early on a Wednesday morning when the volunteers are getting ready to open the pantry? Say, around 9:00? Then the pantry opens at 10:00. Is that possible? The church is closed at other times, so it’s difficult to drop off food. There is a small bin in front of the office doors, where you can leave food if there isn’t too much. Does Wednesday morning work for you? I know they’ll be needing food on Wednesday, May 20.


  2. Hi, I am a 9 year old and me and my friends would like to help out. This whole year at my school I have been learning about helping. So we would like to help you. We were thinking about running a food drive for the Dobbs Ferry food Pantry. We would like to know how to do a food drive?
    1. Do we need a permit?
    2. Do we need permission from you to do the food drive?
    3. What are your most needed items?
    Is there anything else we should know?
    I am putting my mom’s email address below please get back to me when you can.
