PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Charlie Sacco, a chef and active member of the Port Chester Knights of Columbus, works part time at Whole Foods and just started as prep chef at the Carver Center.
Carver has its own vegetable garden, whose produce Sacco plans to use in meals for the campers. Campers get breakfast and a hot lunch. Many campers go to camp on scholarship.
The center also has a food pantry, and campers are given bags of institutional-size groceries to bring home to their families.
The Carver Center has been serving Port Chester children and families since 1943. Programs serve a wide range of Port Chester residents, including children, teens, adults and senior citizens.
