Food Pantry


Volunteers at Food Pantry


The Reformed Dutch Church of Claverack maintains a food pantry for those in need who live in Philmont and Mellenville.

The food pantry is located in the basement area of the Claverack Town Offices at 91 Church Street, Mellenville, NY.

The food pantry is open every Tuesday between the hours of 10:30 am and 11:30 am and from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm in the evening. During the summer months the morning hours are suspended because of the park program.

Food Donations
Donations of food and/or money can be made at the Philmont Public Library. The pantry also needs plastic bags. They can be dropped at the library or the Philmont post office.

Contact Info
For further information about the food pantry, please call Mary at the Claverack Town Office (672-7911).

Rachel Davis and Brian Hedden, apprentices at Hawthorne Valley Farm, have begun providing fresh, organic produce to the Philmont Food Pantry. All of the vegetables they bring are gleaned from what cannot be harvested or sold and would otherwise be composted. They hope this can be the beginning of a long-lasting relationship between Hawthorne Valley Farm and the neighboring community. (click to enlarge)
