How does it work?
Our clients are inputted into a digital database, allowing them to log on to our 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.
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 Susan Meza at (718) 268-5011 ext. 118 or by email at [email protected].
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.
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.
