On Saturday, Dec. 22, Yorktown Town Supervisor Ilan Gilbert and Town Clerk Diana
Quast joined the ranks of the volunteers of the Community Food Pantry to distribute
food to 170 families and toys to over 370 children. e distribution, which included tur-
keys and hams, went well beyond the normal weekly 90-minute distribution period due
to the large number of recipients.

e Community Food Pantry distributes food, clothing, and books each Saturday
morning (9:30-11 a.m.) from the Parish Hall of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on Route
6 in Mohegan Lake. It is supported by local religious organizations and through fund-
raising activities and by donations from local businesses and individuals. It also serves as
an opportunity for teenagers to participate in and receive Community Service credit at
local schools.

e Food Pantry is a non-pro t organization and more information may be obtained
