To help connect community members in need with food resources during this challenging time, the Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center has created and is continuously updating the Coronavirus NYC Food Resource Guides for each NYC neighborhood.
Each resource guide (by borough and district) includes information related to food access within the community, such as meals for students and seniors during this time, delivery services for people with disabilities, and resources for immigrants.
For a list of vetted pantries, click on your borough.
Informational handouts have been updated with current open pantries during COVID-19.
Plentiful is a free, easy-to-use reservation system for food pantries and the people they serve. Use Plentiful to find pantries and get the food you need, without waiting in line.
Download the Android app in Google Play or text “FOOD” to PANTRY (726-879) from any phone.
