The Campaign Against Hunger operates the largest food pantry in Brooklyn. We also provide various social services including job training and education referrals, Food Stamps screening, cooking classes, summer camps, pre-HIV testing, diabetes and high blood pressure testing, and financial literacy classes.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our food distribution operation in front of the TCAH office. Our SuperPantry provides the community with access to fresh produce, whole grains, lean proteins, and new clothes, all at no cost to our clients. The supermarket-style setup of our pantry means that shoppers use a cart and are free to select the items they prefer.

We need volunteers who can assist us with the packaging and distribution of food to our clients from Monday through Friday.

About The Campaign Against Hunger (TCAH)

Location:

2004 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY 11233, US

Mission Statement

With a poverty rate of over 30% for families living in Bedford-Stuyvesant, there are over 20,000 individuals in need of food within the community. The devastation of poverty in this area has left thousands choosing between paying rent/utilities, buying medicine, and obtaining food. Operating under The Campaign Against Hunger, Inc., The Campaign Against Hunger (TCAH) is a non-profit organization working vigorously to end hunger in the Bedford-Stuyvesant/Ocean Hill/Brownsville neighborhoods of Brooklyn, in Community Board Districts 3 and 16. We open our doors with the goal of impacting the lives of a population that has become invisible to society. The mission of the TCAH is to end hunger by distributing food and empowering families through information and support, which will bring strength and dignity to the community. We believe that food is a right, not a privilege, so we strive to make certain our neighbors never have to go without it.

Description

The Campaign Against Hunger (TCAH) serves as a beacon of hope to our community, and our services extend beyond simply providing emergency food to encompass an array of programs. As one of the largest programs in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community, we are able to offer a host of vital services to the diverse clients we serve. Our goal is not simply to provide people with a satisfactory amount of food but to empower our families.

Because of our commitment to ending hunger, in 2006 we expanded our services to accommodate the growing number of customers we presently serve. We relocated to a 2000-square-foot facility in order to open a supermarket-style food pantry, wherein our clients are able to choose the items they want from our shelves. This model reinvests people with the power of choice and lends dignity to the process of emergency food distribution. Additionally, it helps us to conserve food, since customers no longer end up with items they do not want, as often happens when they are given pantry bags. Consequently, the supermarket-style model costs less per meal than a prepackaged-pantry-bag model. Our pantry operates five days a week, with a wide range of hours to meet our customers' needs: Monday & Wednesday from 10:00AM-3:00PM and Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday from 1:00PM-6:30PM. Customers are able to visit our pantry once per month, and we provide enough food for them for three full days (with three meals per day), based on the size of their household.
