Community News

The Pleasantville Community Garden has been an amazing new addition to the spirit of volunteerism and community in our Village. Started by a then-12-year-old and his very supportive family, the PCG has donated more than 3/4 of a ton of food to help feed people in need. Last year, the PCG approached us and asked for our support, and our farmers gladly donated hundreds of pounds of fresh produce. We could not be happier or more proud of our friends, neighbors, and farmers for their efforts to feed those who need.

Community

Gathering Together Over Food

The Pleasantville Farmers Market is more than a food event. It's a community hub. Neighbors start their weekend here, catch up, learn what's happening, and make plans. That's why, whenever possible, the Market makes space for local non-profits to share information about their good works. In the last year, these organizations participated in our Market as part of our Community Outreach efforts:

  • Pleasantville Community Television
  • Pleasantville Fund For Learning
  • Pleasantville Chamber of Commerce
  • Pleasantville Community Garden
  • Pleasantville Music Festival
  • Pleasantville STRONG

GIVING BACK

Because part of our mission is to encourage a healthy community, we feel a special obligation to involve young people in the Market and help them learn about local agriculture, so they can make good lifelong choices. The Pleasantville Farmers Market donates over $8,500 in scholarship and in-kind contributions to the schools, including:

  • Awarding one of the largest annual scholarships in Pleasantville, $2,000 to one student based on community service in areas that reflect our mission
  • Donating over $6,000 in-kind toward the general operating budget
  • Sponsoring Bedford Road (elementary) School’s “Eat a Rainbow” contest
  • Providing over 20 internships annually to Westchester middle and high school students
  • $500 donation to address hunger needs for students within the district

As a Pleasantville-based business, Foodchester makes every effort to support neighboring merchants in the purchase of supplies and professional services. And we are grateful for the support we receive in return. It's this spirit of community that makes Pleasantville such a great place to live and work.
