The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a public healthand economic crisis, the effects of which – unemployment and under-employment,food insecurity, social isolation, and illness – are evidenced throughout ourcommunity. The consequences of this crisis have created an added hardship forthose already facing challenges making ends meet, as well as asignificant increase in the number of people who find themselves out of workand food insecure possibly for the very first time.
While federal nutrition programs provide some food assistance, the first line of defense here in the Town of East Hampton are our local food pantries, as it is our four food pantries – East Hampton Food Pantry, Montauk Food Pantry, Springs Food Pantry, and the Hamptons Church Food Pantry in Wainscott – that are providing substantive, nutritious meals for our Seniors, our children, and our hardworking folks who might otherwise go hungry. Think of it. There are folks who would otherwise go hungry in the Town of East Hampton.
The demand at our local food pantries has risenat an extraordinary rate as folks flood a charitable system that was neverintended to handle a nationwide crisis. With no immediate end to this crisis insight, our food pantries will be operating at elevated levels for theforeseeable future. As the holidays approach, please consider making acharitable donation to support those in our community who might otherwise gohungry.
