Welcome and Thank You
Thanks for visiting our web site and allowing us to tell you about The York County Food Closet. The Food Closet is a 501(c)(3) organization under the umbrella of the national unit of Church Women United. It serves needy residents of York County and Poquoson and all donations are tax-deductible. The Food Closet respects and serves all clients equally, regardless of race, religious preference, color, sex, marital status, age, national origin, citizenship, or handicap.
We have so many dedicated partners (both individuals and organizations) that it is hard to show our real appreciation for their support. One way we try is to post the most recent contributor sign-in sheets. We are always in awe of the range and depth of our contributors - thank you! Click here to view the latest month's contributors.
Thanksgiving Boxes. Thanksgiving is a special time and the youth of the Tabb YMCA , as in years past, decorated our Food Closet's extra box of traditional Thanksgiving fare. Click here for additional information on these special boxes as well as seasonal contributions by other organizations.
A Thank You to the Members of St Luke's Church Council. The new Food Closet is beautiful!! Words cannot convey our appreciation of this grand gift. And we promise you that the ministry to the hungry of our county will continue in a loving & caring manner, with God's help. Proverbs 14:31 states"...whoever is kind to the needy honors God." Your ongoing dedication to the ministry of the Food Closet truly honors God. We appreciate the direction given by the Church Council & by the building chairman, Blair Ellis & George Leftwich and their committee members. Well done, good & faithful servants!!! In God's Love, People of the Food Closet

The York County Food Closet celebrated the grand opening of its new facility, along with its 40th anniversary of service to the hungry of York County and Poquoson, on Sunday, November 3. The facility was built as part of the recent addition to St. Luke’s United Methodist Church on Ella Taylor Road, and its furnishings were provided by the Yorktown Rotary Club.

Jesus commanded, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10:25-27)
Our ministry provides loving service to the poor and hungry of
York County and Poquoson, by operating an ecumenical food pantry.
Volunteering might literally be good for your heart, a new study suggests. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have found an association between volunteerism and decreased risk of high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart attack, stroke, heart failure and metabolic syndrome . Help change the world, feed the hungry, see how you can be a Food Closet Volunteer.
