Mission Statement

Wellfare is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in New York City on a mission to solve food insecurity and transform the state of grocery and nutrition in low-income communities across the country.

Description

The Better Box from Wellfare is the first free food program in the country focused on premium, functional and nutritious packaged groceries. Each Better Box includes over $200 worth of low-sugar, low-salt and low-fat products like plant-based milk, nutrition bars, zero-sugar seltzers and protein-packed pasta donated from Wellfare’s growing roster of brand partners. Every month, enrolled families pick up their free Better Box from a convenient popup distribution outpost in the community - no long line required.

While most food banks and pantries focus almost entirely on produce, Wellfare is meeting a growing need for convenient nutrition and better-for-you alternatives in low-income communities. The Better Box is a practical, efficient and dignified approach to nourishing underserved families, and is the first step in Wellfare’s fight against food insecurity.
