SERVING OUR COMMUNITY SINCE 1992

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 1992. The number of households seeking our services catapulted from 8,317 in 2009 to 15,661 in 2010.

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 week.

FEEDING LOCAL FAMILIES

No organization on the East End is more important to the well-being of local residents in need.

The East Hampton Food Pantry works closely with individuals and families to make sure no one in our community is hungry. Our primary location is in East Hampton, with additional operations at East Hampton High School and in Amagansett.

Every season brings challenges to our clients, and of course, winter is the roughest time of year. The food we provide can often means families and individuals can pay for heat, medical care, and the ongoing needs of growing children.

The East Hampton Food Pantry serves over 300 families in East Hampton and Amagansett every week, and we feed East Hampton High School students as well. We maintain a center for collection, storage and distribution of food to meet our communities growing needs.
