Hunger | Westchester Community Foundation

From helping renters avoid eviction, to feeding the hungry, to helping workers get good-paying jobs, we address poverty from many angles. Here's a sample of what we can accomplish through the generosity of donors like you.

Access to Legal Representaion

We support nonprofit legal service providers who help low-income residents get skilled, trustworthy representation. We’ve helped:

  • Residents facing eviction stay in their homes and out of shelters
  • Families affected by domestic violence navigate the courts
  • Provide legal help for immigrants

More Fresh Food for the Hungry

One in five residents in Westchester is hungry, and since 2020 the need has increased. We’re ensuring that hungry individuals get access to nutritious food. We’ve helped:

  • Expand a farm-to-pantry program
  • Get more nutritious meals delivered to the homebound
  • Launch a bulk-buy purchasing program that delivers fresh staples to participating pantries

Connect Workers with Good Jobs

We’re ensuring job seekers have the skills employers demand. We’ve helped:

  • Equip workers for jobs in construction, technology, and other fields
  • Help community-college students start careers in healthcare
  • Connect local employers to skilled workers
