Mission Statement

We’re NYC’s largest, donation-based community food pantry. We provide free food for anyone in need. And we are serious about an inclusive community. We do not tolerate any discrimination, we're LGBTQ+ friendly, and we can accommodate peoples with disabilities. Our workplace is safe, and there is hands-on training for any activity that is new to you. Join us!

Description

In 2016, we started with just a supply room in a school. We were a few volunteers dedicated to helping New Yorkers who struggled to make ends meet. Every Saturday, we supplied 500 families with groceries we bought, rescued, or that were donated from local grocery stores and food drives.

When Covid-19 sickened thousands and shut down the city's economy, food insecurity doubled overnight. We did everything we could to scale up, and we are now reaching 2,000 families a day in our crisis-converted school house. It was an intense six months, but we are now operating where few others can and we're here to stay. We've fed 650,000 New Yorkers and counting.

Volunteers can expect to form a strong connection with our existing teams, and will feel a great sense of purpose driven by helping others. In just one single day, you might hand out food to hundreds, or move 10,000 pounds of groceries. You might bag dry goods, or help behind the scenes with phone banking, data, or social media. There are dozens of things to do, and we can place people where they feel most comfortable and valued.
