Carver Center is working with Caritas PC to provide home delivery of meals and groceries to people who are homebound.
Anyone interested in receiving food via home delivery on SATURDAYS should call 914-305-3967.
Leave a voicemail in English or Spanish and someone will call back to confirm.
Deliveries are made on SATURDAYS ONLY.
There will be no deliveries on Saturday, November 28.
Our Food Services Program is a vital resource to a vulnerable population that suffers from food insecurity. More than 70% of Port Chester children qualify for free or reduced lunch.
The Carver Market continues to be an important and vital resource to our food-insecure community. The Market continues to supplement our community’s need for food, three days a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. We are collaborating with our community partners Caritas of Port Chester and Feeding Westchester to feed an increased number of families without duplicating our important services.
Carver Market distributed emergency food relief to 38,751 individuals in 10,396 households from March through October.
SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM
Carver Center distributed healthy meals this past summer to Port Chester School District children through the Summer Food Service Program.
During the months of July and August, Carver Center distributed 16,919 breakfasts and lunches.
Our community partner, Caritas, provided 6,467weekend meals to families at the Friday distributions.
Thanks to the great staff at Edison, our Miss Carver Teen, Kay-Sian Findley, who helped collect the data, all the staff at Caritas, and our Carver Market staff for preparing and delivering the meals to the Edison School every weekday.
The need for food will continue to grow as we enter the upcoming Fall season. Carver Center is working on developing ways to expand our capacity to reach a broader base of our community.
