The CHOICE food pantry is open every Friday to help minimize food insecurity for the 2000 individuals we provide services for monthly. Help us reach our goal, because people cant live a full life on an empty stomach.

At CHOICE, we operate under the premise that everyone who walks through our doors deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. And in that vein, we don’t pigeon-hole ourselves with regard to what types of assistance we try to provide to individuals.
Yes, CHOICE is a mental health case management and advocacy organization, but ancillary to that, we have found the need to provide services to our clients that might ordinarily be considered outside our scope, but are critical to helping people build meaningful and positive lives – services like jobs programs, socialization groups and homeless outreach. And now, we are proud to announce we can add “food pantry services” to that list.
Over the summer of 2018 Choice launched our new weekly food pantry program and invited our clients to come to our White Plains office and go “grocery shopping” for free. It’s obvious to most that food is a basic human need, but how often have you thought about how difficult it might be for people to tackle the really hard tasks in life when they are simply too hungry to think about them. Hungry people just aren’t as good at coping with all life throws at them, so we are stepping in to try and help some put food on the table so one of their most basic needs no longer becomes a struggle.
