In the Fall of 2017, our Central Queens Food Pantry (in Forest Hills) became much easier to access!

We’ve input our clients into a NEW digital database, allowing them to now log on to our new system from home or from one of our in-house kiosks, and order their personalized monthly food selections which will then be prepared and ready to be picked up within minutes. Since we have moved into our new renovated space (the White House on 67th Road), the number of families that have come by to receive food packages have gone up by about 50-percent!

Please remember that anyone who is in need of groceries can call us any time to arrange an emergency pick-up.

For additional information about becoming a client of our Food Pantry, please contact Jhadran Rojas at (718) 268-5011 ext 433 or by email at [email protected]. You may also contact Jhadran if you would you like to volunteer at our Food Pantry.

If you would like to contribute, your donation of $18.00 will cover the cost of 9 to 12 meal distributions. You can make a donation by clicking here. Donations of non-perishable foods are gratefully accepted.

We also encourage community members to volunteer their gardens and donate fresh produce from their own gardens to our food pantry. For more information, please email [email protected]

This program is made possible through the generosity of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty.
