Helping Feed Our Community
The Heart of the Hamptons Food Pantry is open to the public on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10AM-12PM, or by appointment, and provides bi-lingual support from both staff and volunteers. In March 2020, we adjusted our operations for the safety of our constituents. Food Pantry customers are welcomed to visit once a week and receive groceries using a “drive-thru” method of distribution. The Food Pantry is stocked with a variety of nutritious non-perishable foods. including canned soup, cereal, pasta, canned tuna, peanut butter and more. Upon request, we distribute pet food, infant formula and diapers. We also provide a diversified bag of fresh produce that is generously donated from HAPCO Farms/Fresh From the Start. In addition, all customers receive frozen meat. At Heart of the Hamptons, we’re committed to distributing food that will support the health and wellbeing of our customers.
We currently serve over 1,400 households (4,590 people). Anyone can visit our Food Pantry, but to become a member one must register and show proof of a local address. Members receive an ID card that logs their participation and provides access to all our services.
Our pantry is supported by a number of generous donations from local businesses, civic groups, community food drives and private donations. Local businesses including Tate’s Bake Shop, Goldbergs Bagels, Peconic Prime Meats and North Sea Farms donate bread, bagels and cookies. Local Civic organizations including Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, the Southampton Village Police Benevolent Association, Southampton Montessori School, The Children’s School, Our Lady of the Hamptons School and the Southampton Rotary Club conduct annual food drives that bring us hundreds of pounds of non-perishable food.
We accept food donations on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10AM-3PM. If you would like to host a food drive or donate food, click here for our most needed items!
