Nonprofit Westchester Strong: Carver Center of Port Chester



We are proud to spotlight NPW member Carver Center for their leadership in ensuring that vulnerable populations in Port Chester receive the food they need.

This unprecedented need for food in our Westchester communities has inspired unprecedented cooperation between three local non-profits.

Carver Center, Caritas and The Salvation Army are pooling resources and coordinating activities to make sure that they are serving as many food insecure residents as possible without duplication of services. Caritas is sourcing food donations and cooking food for distribution. The Salvation Army is delivering groceries and meals to homebound residents. Carver Center is distributing groceries and meals from the Carver Market, currently located on the Center's playground. This past Friday alone, 434 Port Chester residents received produce, shelf stable groceries and hot meals prepared by T & J Restaurant.

Together Carver Center, Caritas, and The Salvation Army organizations are feeding thousands of residents each week. "It's remarkable to see us coming together in a spirit of unity around our shared mission," said Anne Bradner, CEO of the Carver Center. "It's a model for non-profit collaboration. We came together in the midst of a crisis recognizing that we are stronger and more effective together."
