East Hampton Food Pantry Inc
Nonprofit focused on food, agriculture, and nutrition. It is based in East Hampton, NY. It received its nonprofit status in 2005.
Founded by a group of caring and committed local people who saw a need and knew they had to do something, The East Hampton Food Pantry opened in 1989. From the basement at the Senior Center to wherever we could serve the hungry were our roots and volunteers who still to this day put their integrity and soul to help others in need. The number of households seeking our services catapulted from 2,180 in 1989 to 15,661 in 2010 and getting bigger every year.
Numbers rise and fall, annually, but over time, the need for food continues to increase and the East Hampton Food Pantry remains active and essential to the community, especially seniors and especially during Thanksgiving and Christmas week.
