Early in the pandemic, we formed the Port Chester Food Network with our community partners to address the food crisis. A strategic plan was created that optimized each organization’s strengths and resources s without duplicating critical resources and services. Meals on Main Street (Caritas of Port Chester) is supplying pre-packaged meals to Carver for distribution that they are sourcing from local businesses and The Salvation Army of Port Chester is delivering food to our home bound seniors who are not capable of accessing distribution locations.
The Carver Market served 23,7182 households between April 2020 and September 2021. This is equal to 84,572 children, adults, and seniors at our weekday distributions.
At the present time, we are accepting individual donations of food and personal items, such as diapers. Our Market is also stocked through the generosity and kindness of our supporters including discounted grocery programs, community gardens, individual donors, corporate donations, community food drives and various non-profit partners.

The Carver Market continues to be an important and vital resource to Port Chester. We will continue to look for ways to increase our capacity to be able supplement our community’s need for food.
