Free food banks and pantries Dutchess County.

Groceries, meals, and other services are provided from food pantries in Dutchess County New York. The centers, many of which are run from non-profits or churches, give priority to those residents that are most at risk. This can include families with children, senior citizens, and the disabled. They will tend to be first in line for any available private or government funded food assistance programs.

Case managers and volunteers at many of the pantries try to help clients in other ways as well. They can direct individuals to longer term support, such as Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WOC) or food stamps. So in general, the working poor and low income families will have access to both short term, emergency food aid and longer term support from a pantry.
