The Food Bank for Westchester relies on the generous support of a large network of volunteers and contributors of foods and funds. There are several ways an individual can help us with our goal to end hunger in Westchester County:
- By mail or phone: Print out and complete our Donation Form and mail it to us with your check or credit card information.
- Through financial planning/planned giving.
- Volunteers work in our warehouse and offices and at our events. Volunteers also serve on our board of directors. For details about volunteering in the Food Bank warehouse, click on Volunteer Opportunities under Donate Time at left.
- Hold a Food Drive -- see the links in the menu panel at left for information.
Check the list of Most-Needed Food Items -- this can be printed out and distributed.
