Carver Center is currently closed to the public in response to the current health crisis until further notice. The Carver Market continues to operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning at 1:00pm. We stay open as long as supplies last, typically around 3:30pm.

To meet current demand, Carver Center has closed its self-choice market inside the building and is distributing pre-packaged food and meals from the playground behind the building. We also distribute diapers, masks and hand sanitizer as donations of product allow.

Carver Center is working closely with community partners to provide food and supplies. We are working closely with Meals on Main Street by Caritas, Feeding Westchester, 914 Cares, St. Francis A.M.E. Zion Church, the Salvation Army and the Town of Rye.

Anyone in need of groceries, produce or take-out meals is welcome to come to the Market. Please visit our Facebook Page for frequent updates on any immediate needs and/or changes to Market hours. https://www.facebook.com/pccarvercenter

Carver Center remains committed to meeting the evolving needs of the community.
