Food Bank for Westchester

“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” —Aesop

In hopes of talking less and doing more when it comes to helping others, I’ve decided to start a series I’m calling Good Samaritan Saturday. Each Saturday morning, I’ll post a little something you can do to start your weekend out with positive vibes by helping to lift someone else up…

Food Bank for Westchester

A lot of times we think about donating food to food pantries around the holidays. But people are hungry all year round. It’s just as important to give a little in the heat of the summer as it is when Santa Clauses are ringing their bells on every street corner.

So when you go grocery shopping for the week, why not grab a few extra nonperishables to drop at your local food pantry? If you’re unsure of where to find a location near you, try searching Feeding America for a food bank in your area.

And if you don’t have any extra money, remember that your time is just as valuable. Local people can check out Food Bank for Westchester for ways to help support food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, senior facilities and child care centers throughout our county.
