Westchester County free food pantries.

Find information on food banks, soup kitchens for hot meals and free food pantries in Westchester County New York. A number of non-profit agencies, distribution centers, churches and food banks near you help people. There are locations of free, emergency food pantries as well as soup kitchens that are in White Plains, Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, and across the entire Westchester County New York region.

Many centers operate under limited hours, and people applying for food, meals, or groceries need to meet certain conditions. There is also a referral number at the bottom of the page. What they can provide is also often limited by donations and the availability of volunteers. However each food pantry will do its best to not turn anyone away from receiving assistance.

Every year the regional Westchester NY food banks and pantries as well as those throughout the county provide free services and food to tens of thousands of residents to help them make it through a difficult period in their life. They also help them apply for SNAP food stamps, free WIC vouchers, or government assistance. Thousands of free, hot meals are served too, including at Thanksgiving as well as Christmas. Find the locations and phone numbers of each location below. Or try regional charities like the Salvation Army food programs in Westchester County.
