College Donates Food to Local Organizations

Kathryn Strobel, Director of Community Engagement and Involvement, packs bags of food into a truck to donate to local organizations,

Dominican College has donated boxes of pre-packaged meals and bags of canned goods to People to People and the Nyack Center to help local families in need.

Kathryn Strobel, Director of Community Engagement and Leadership Development, said that the food came from the College’s Catherine Howard Food Pantry and prior to the COVID-19 outbreak was intended to help students, who are no longer on campus.  “My thought was why have the food sitting there going unused knowing that there are people who desperately need food right now in our community,” said Strobel.

In addition, Dominican Dining Services run by Chartwells donated snack foods to emergency room doctors and nurses at Montefiore Nyack Hospital who have little time to prepare or order food as they respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
