All Are Welcome

Our food pantry is open every Saturday from 10-11 AM and serves at our West campus at 15 South Avenue, Beacon, NY 12508. Come to the door on the bottom floor at the south-west corner of the building, closest to the large parking lot along highway 9-D.

If you would like to donate to our food pantry, we accept financial donations at any time. We are also open for food donations every Friday from 10-11 AM. Non-perishable items such as shelf stable milk, cereal, pasta and canned foods are most useful, but you can also donate frozen food and fresh produce. Please contact us at our email at the bottom of this web page if you would like to donate. Thank you for your generosity and support!

Our food pantry is a symbol of God’s love for all people and our care and concern for our neighbors.  It is available to any resident of Beacon who finds themselves in need of food. 

Parishioners and other volunteers participate in various aspects of this ministry; securing and purchasing food, preparing for distribution and stocking shelves, and meeting and distributing food to our guests. Our food pantry seeks continuing support from the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, New York State, the Diocese of New York and the local business community, churches and schools. 

To benefit from our food pantry, you only have to show the following:

  • proof that you live in the City of Beacon and proof of the ages and residence of children and adults in your household

  • a photo ID (required only at the time of registration for our program)

  • proof that your income meets State Guidelines.

We are deeply grateful for the support we receive for our food pantry, and welcome donations and volunteers.  Volunteers are needed to distribute food for one hour on Saturdays. Set up is at 9:30 a.m. and distribution is from 10 to 11 a.m. The food is packed on Friday morning at 10 a.m. 

Members of the wider community who would like to participate in the work of the food pantry may call the church at 845-831-1369. You can also reach out to us here.
