United Interfaith Food Bank

In 2005, the SCC became a founding member of the United Interfaith Food Bank, a group of three churches (SCC, Christ Church and St. James the Less) and two synagogues (Scarsdale Synagogue and Shaarei Tikvah) that donated 210 bags of food per month to three nonprofit organizations in the Bronx: Thorpe Family Residence, St. Brendan’s Roman Catholic Church and Bronx Jewish Community Council. In 2017 the member houses of worship decided to change the mission of the United Interfaith Food Bank.  Plans are in place to acquire food from the Westchester Food Bank, in addition to donations from members of the churches and synagogues, to distribute to food programs in the Scarsdale local area.
