We are holding our Annual Food Drive for the Food Bank for Westchester from January 23rd to February 6th. There will be collection boxes in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms as well as the Bronxville Middle School office and the MS/HS Library throughout the drive.
If you are around the Village on Saturday, February 2nd, you will see several middle and high school students and staff collecting food outside the A & P from 9am until 1pm. We will do this in addition to our classroom collections.
Below is some information about the Food Bank and a list of the most needed items:
- The Food Bank for Westchester is dedicated to alleviating hunger in Westchester County.
- Chronic malnutrition creates children who cannot learn and thrive, seniors who suffer needlessly, and adults who are in poor health, inattentive and unproductive, affecting the work force.
- The Food Bank for Westchester, with its 9% overhead and extensive food distribution network, provides a hands-on solution to chronic hunger in Westchester.
- The Food Bank has seen increased demands for food over the past year. There have been several articles in local newspapers about this concern.
- Please limit contributions to canned goods (such as tuna, beef, stew, soup, chili, and beans), food in plastic containers (such as peanut butter, jams and jellies, juice, ketchup, and mustard), and personal hygiene items (such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and soap).
- Glass of any kind cannot be accepted.
- Be sure to check expiration dates. Expired food cannot be used.
Thank you for your past support and for your continued generosity.
