Vicki Littman, the chairwoman of the East Hampton Food Pantry, said Tuesday that this year’s New Year’s Day polar bear plunge at East Hampton’s Main Beach had raised more than $12,000 for the food pantries in East Hampton, Wainscott, Amagansett, and Springs. While grateful for the donations, Littman said “the need continues to be great — we are serving 300 families a week just at East Hampton. There are a lot of people out of work now — the need is not going to go away.”
