The Need:

Food insecurity refers to USDA's measure of lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members.

Our Solutions:

Our food services are designed to aid, sustain and empower hungry New Yorkers. They include the country’s largest kosher food pantry system, emergency food cards, home delivered meals, food rescue and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) enrollment assistance.

These programs enable clients to eat more healthfully — and ensure they can use their limited income to meet other daily needs, such as rent, clothing and medication.

We understand the unique challenges of affording kosher food and the importance of food for rituals. That is why all of the food throughout our system is kosher. That said, our services are available to anyone who is hungry—regardless as to whether or not they keep kosher.
