Matthew 25 Food Pantry

"For I was hungry and you fed me..."

Matthew 25

My name is Patti Dushane, I am the Executive Director and Founder of Matthew 25 Food Pantry.  I live in Catskill, New York 12414. I am a  Third Order Secular Franciscan.  While I was in prayer, during the Lenten season in 2008, God let me know that He wanted me to open a food pantry. After some discernment, I decided to begin.  We use to work out of a small three room apartment but now the Lord, God has moved me to a "bigger" place.  We have moved to 298 Main Street in Catskill, New York 12414.  After being there for approximately a year, we had a fire, and lost everything.  But, even a fire does not stop the Lord's work.  The good people of our community came to the rescue and helped us get back on our feet.  We worked day and night to get back open!  We are now at our new location of 8 Union Street in Catskill.  We serve ALL of Greene County and anyone else that God sends.   I have the full support of my family and would like to "Thank" my husband, Stan and my two children, Chrissy and Beau, for supporting me and assisting me whenever I need them.  I couldn't do it without them!

Volunteers are the "Backbone" of any organization.  I am the luckiest person to have such wonderful, dedicated volunteers!  They work faithfully and give their all to their community!  Nobody gets paid and they work long hours on weekends and holidays.   I couldn't do it without you!
