Veteran Food Pantry

Dec 30, 13 Veteran Food Pantry

We have a Veteran Food Pantry open year round, we also deliver food supplies to Veterans that are just moving into housing from shelters as well as Veterans who cannot get to our location.

After the holiday season and providing over 100 Frozen Turkeys and up to 50 pounds of groceries each for Thanksgiving and then providing over 30 families with groceries along with turkeys and hams for Christmas our shelves are almost bare. We are not partnered with supermarkets or food pantries: we count on the community to step up and assist local Veterans.

We accept canned, boxed, frozen, all types, (we have freezers and refrigeration on site).
We also have a need for gluten free foods as well as low sodium foods due to diet restrictions of some of those we help.
Some families have babies that range from 3 months and up, so all baby basics such as formula, diapers, wipes are also needed and appreciated.

Our next collection drive will be on Saturday January 11th, at the Boots on The Ground NY – Veteran Activity Center located at 2184 Pond Road, Ronkonkoma NY 11779 (631-615-2200) between the hours of 0930 & 1300 hours.
