County Harvest has announced an expanded partnership with DeCicco & Sons which includes 25 new County Harvest food delivery runs, helping to serve more agency partners and positively impact more people in need.
“DeCicco & Sons has always been committed to the communities they serve, and it is no surprise that as DeCicco & Sons expand throughout Westchester, so does their generosity. After discussing the possibilities with Luisa DeCicco, the stores jumped right in to donate more great food to our efforts,” said Missy Palmisciano, Founder and President, County Harvest.
DeCicco & Sons stores in Ardsley, Armonk, Brewster, Harrison, Larchmont, Millwood and Pelham now provide food to the following agency partners every week:
• Caritas in Port Chester
• Community Center of Northern Westchester in Katonah
• Don Bosco Community Center in Port Chester
• Eastchester C.A.P. in Tuckahoe
• HOPE Community Services in New Rochelle
• Lifting Westchester in White Plains
• Mt. Kisco Interfaith Food Pantry
• Putnam C.A.P. in Brewster
• St. Thomas Episcopal Church in New Rochelle
• Star of Bethlehem Soup Kitchen in Ossining
• West Help Shelter in Mt. Vernon
"DeCicco & Sons is profoundly proud to partner with County Harvest’s Recovery Program as one of its retail food donors. It is so rewarding to know that the food we donate to County Harvest reaches local soup kitchens, food pantries and homeless shelters throughout the entire Westchester County, truly making a difference for individuals and families in need,” said Luisa DeCicco, PhD, Director of Human Resources, DeCicco & Sons.
Both Missy Palmisciano and Luisa DeCicco are women making a positive impact in the Westchester community. Through their efforts and coordination, a significant amount of food is finding its way to people in need.
