The Town of Montgomery Food Pantry is a resource for anyone in need to receive food once a month and is available to residents living in the Valley Central School District.
We are a privately run Pantry that has volunteers, staffed by four local churches.
•First Presbyterian Church, Village of Montgomery
•First Reformed Church, Village of Walden
•Most Precious Blood Catholic Church, Village of Walden
•St. Andrew's Episcopal Church/Chapel of Walden, Village of Walden
The Pantry is mainly funded by private donations and local food drives. The Pantry does receive state funding through grants and are able to purchase food at a lesser cost at the Cornwall Food Bank which is supplied by the Greater Hudson Valley Food Bank in Latham, New York.
