New York Common Pantry
New York Common Pantry is dedicated to reducing hunger throughout New York City while promoting dignity and self-sufficiency.
New York Common Pantry works toward the reduction of hunger and food insecurity through an array of programs that function to establish long-term independence for those they serve. NYCP’s whole-person approach starts with food provision through the distribution of nutritious, fresh food pantry packages in Choice Pantry and hearty balanced breakfast and dinner in the Hot Meals program. They then go further to address the reasons for food insecurity with case management services through Help 365, which assists Pantry visitors in gaining access to resources, and Project Dignity, which connects homeless visitors to resources. The third vital element to NYCP’s whole-person approach is education offered through the Live Healthy! program. Live Healthy! teaches children and adults about the importance of a nutritionally sound diet and active living, as well as provides them with the skills necessary to make healthier choices for their families.
