Don Bosco Community Kitchen, Pantry and Children’s Closet
An Eighty Year Mission to the Poor of Port Chester
Since 1928, Don Bosco Center has served the needs of poor immigrant youth and their families in the Village of Port Chester. Our food and clothing programs – Don Bosco Soup Kitchen, Food Pantry and Children’s Closet – are core to our mission of enabling all people to live healthy and productive lives.
In the tradition of St. John Bosco, these programs are meant to nourish by providing access to “daily bread” but also the “bread of life.” In addition to breakfast and lunch at our Soup Kitchen, groceries at our Food Pantry and clothing, books and toys at our Children’s Closet, we welcome our guests by joining them in prayer and affirmation of their dignity as a child of God.
Will you join us in this 80 year old mission to those most in need in Port Chester?
