Caroline Food Pantry

Distributions on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month

In addition to food, the Caroline Food Pantry also collects personal care products, school supplies, clothing, especially children’s clothing, diapers, toys, car seats, high chairs and kitchen supplies and distributes these free to clients. The food pantry also does emergency distributions between the regular sessions. Catholic Charities is available at every distribution to provide personal care products such as toilet paper, toothpaste, soap and shampoo. Though their grant is small and they have limited quantities, these items are available to everyone regardless of religion. The pantry always welcomes donations and appreciates volunteers. We start packing boxes for delivery at 5 pm on distribution days. Donations of food, personal care products, clothing or kitchen supplies can be dropped off during any distribution, or call Pat at 539-9928 or e-mail her at bccinfo@brooktondalecc.org to schedule a pick up or drop off time. Cash donations are very much appreciated. Checks can be made out to the Caroline Food Pantry and sent to PO Box 130, Brooktondale, NY 14817. Through the Food Bank of the Southern Tier we buy things like yogurt at $1 a case, so we can stretch your dollars to help feed about 350 people at each distribution.
