The RDC Center of Compassion Food Pantry helps feed hundreds of individuals every month. Our food pantry provides a private environment that respects your privacy and acknowledges how difficult it is to ask for assistance.  Whenever possible, we offer “Client Choice”, where you can pick brands that you want – the options are not all decided for you.

The face of hunger is ever changing – our clients include single people, couples, parents with children, senior citizens, men, women, young and old, those struggling to get by on Social Security, the unemployed or under-employed, veterans, the sick and handicapped who cannot work, as well as those who just can’t make ends meet.   All have one thing in common; they are hungry.

The food pantry is staffed by our great volunteers and is supported by donations from private individuals, a grant from The Regional Food Bank of The Hudson Valley, the parishioners of our local churches, schools and organizations, and by corporate sponsors. All donations to the food pantry may be tax deductible.

The pantry is located at 52 Mill Street in Dover Plains, NY 12522.

Assistance is available by appointment during the week. Please call 845-877-6168.We recommend appointments, as opposed to walk ins, to insure that there will be a food pantry staff member available to assist you.
