Church Community Programs

OSSINING FOOD PANTRY
The Ossining Food Pantry was established in 1988 and is located here at Trinity Church. The purpose of the pantry is to provide food for those who have an emergency need and to familiarize them with other community resources. Clients of the OFP are eligible to receive food twice a month and may be referred to the Pantry by social service agencies and clergy. The OFP is a project serving residents of Ossining and Briarcliff Manor and is open on Thursdays from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM and on Fridays from 10:00 AM – 12:00 noon. Founded by four area Episcopal churches, it is now a community project encompassing many houses of worship with support from civic organizations and corporations. More than 100 families are served each week. Delivery to homebound seniors and the disabled started in October 1992. To ease the burden on busy working families, deliveries are also coordinated through local childcare and community agencies.
