“Hunger Doesn’t Take a Vacation” --

Summer Volunteers Needed for Food Pantry Shifts
Mamaroneck, NY (June 25, 2015) – The Larchmont Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force needs volunteers for its Food Pantry this summer. Especially urgent is the need for volunteers to pack grocery bags on Tuesdays from 5:15-6:15pm and for strong individuals to carry grocery bags for clients on Wednesdays from 9-10:30am.

“With school vacations, we lose many of our regular volunteers for the summer,” said Joan Capaldi, Volunteer Coordinator. “Unfortunately, hunger doesn’t take a vacation. We desperately need to fill these slots in order to ensure that our neighbors in need continue to receive food in July and August.  Volunteering at the Food Pantry in the summer is a meaningful way to give back to the community, while at the same time meeting school and community service requirements.”

The Food Pantry will be distributing groceries on July 14-15, July 28-29, August 11-12 and August 25-26. Volunteers who can move heavy boxes of food are always welcome from 9:30-11am on Tuesdays to help unload groceries from delivery trucks.

If you are interested, please email Joan Capaldi at

The Larchmont Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force is an all-volunteer coalition of community organizations, houses of worship and concerned citizens dedicated to assisting families living in Larchmont and Mamaroneck who need food. It runs a food pantry that distributes a nutritional bag of groceries providing four days of mealtwice a month. To learn more, to volunteer, or to donate, visit us on the web at,

Streetscape Update

Dear Neighbors,
Next Monday, June 29, there will be no parking on the west side of Palmer Avenue from PDQ to Ann Taylor, #2021 to #1915 and on the east side from Wells Fargo to Julia B. Fee.
The Streetscape contractor will begin to sawcut in the roadway at 7:00am and parking will be restored as the work progresses.  The job will be completed in the early afternoon and will speed up the completion of the Streetscape.
The installation of the bases for the light posts has begun.  The lights themselves, trees, benches and trash cans are coming in the Fall.
We now are seeing how some of the completed sidewalks will look.  Your patience and understanding are appreciated.
Sincerely, Anne H. McAndrews
