Gotham Food Pantry is committed to establishing Food Justice through the five boroughs through a hyper-local, sustainable approach that empowers historically underserved communities.
Gotham Food Pantry was founded at the onset of COVID-19 to address the unprecedented food insecurity facing New Yorkers. We seek to bridge the divide between large food rescuers and local feeding initiatives, and empower communities to benefit from the vast number of local food rescue opportunities that presently go to waste. Our initiatives include establishing community fridges--free public refrigerators--in NYCHA housing complexes, sourcing food for community fridge networks throughout the city, and making food rescue a way of life for all New Yorkers. Gotham envisions a New York City where food security is a way of life for all citizens. If this vision resonates with you, please join our mission.
