Given the current situation of our nation, with many families falling behind on payments and food insecurity becoming a growing issue, we have chosen to devote our earnings from Poetry’s Purpose to the Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry. Ever since COVID-19 began, unemployment rates have drastically increased, making the daily act of putting food on the kitchen table a struggle. With many families unable to afford groceries and other essential items, it is important to support our local charities that aim to help alleviate those issues. This food pantry tackles hunger from all different angles, and delivers proper nutrition to about 400 households every week. Located in the United Methodist Church in Mount Kisco, the Mount Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry partners with Neighbors Link and Feeding Westchester. Although the food pantry is up and running well, they’re still working hard to help families who need assistance. Hopefully, our donations will make a difference.
