Thank you for checking out our donations page! The Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry accepts both financial and food donations. Please read on for more information about how and what to donate. Use the button below to donate to the food pantry.
Our staff is all volunteer, so 100% of your donations go to serving the needs of our clients.
If not using Paypal, please mail your tax deductible check made out to “South Presbyterian Church” with the memo line reading “Food Pantry” to 343 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522.
These donations enable the pantry to purchase items at the Food Bank at a much lower cost than what is normally available at a grocery store. Some items in our bulk purchase orders are free. Sometimes we need to purchase items from grocery stores, even after a food drive! These donations help defray these expenses.
Since we are entirely a volunteer organization, 100% of your donations (less credit card transaction fees) are put towards buying the items that are needed most at the pantry.
If you would like to donate stock, please send us an email. We are happy to accept securities. We can always use the following items in smaller sizes (for easier carrying – many of our clients walk to the pantry): flour, cooking oil, dried beans, tuna and canned fish or meats, canned/boxed tomatoes, apple sauce and other dried and canned fruits, macaroni and cheese, substantial soups, peanut butter and jelly, cereals, pasta sauce and spaghetti.
Food can be left at the church in the vestibule of the sanctuary or in the kitchen, during business hours at the office (M-T from 9am to noon), or you can email us to arrange a time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some employers generously match donations of employees to charitable organizations. If you need help navigating the matching gifts process, please contact us.
