The Beverly Closs Food Pantry is in dire need of monetary and food donations. Our pantry helps to feed the less fortunate of Dutchess County, New York. Last year, demand for our food pantry doubled and the cost nearly tripled; a trend that is unfortunately expected to continue. A monthly average of 365 families came to the pantry for help-many for the first time ever. Over 17,000 more meals were provided than the previous year! Conditions are not improving, which is why we are counting on our community now, more than ever.
