A public appeal for donations has resulted in more than $14,000 being contributed to the Cortlandt Emergency Food Bank.

Jordy Bell, secretary of the board and director of grants, said the donations ranged from a folded $1 bill to a $5,000 check.

“We have been so moved by the great capacity of the Westchester community to help hungry among us,” Bell said.

The Croton-based pantry serves as many as 400 people a month, providing about four days worth of healthy and balanced meals. Donations can be sent to: Cortlandt Emergency Food Bank, 19 Old Post Road South, Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520.
