Food Pantry

 Our pantry is one of, if not the largest food pantry on the Lower East Side. We presently serve over 700 families from the neighborhood each month, distributing bags of food which include nutritionally diverse selections. We make it a priority to offer fresh produce to our clients and have received recognition for our program from the City of New York. Representatives from SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) come quarterly during distribution days to screen clients for eligibility and to assist with SNAP applications.

Food distribution is every Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

If you have any questions about receiving food or volunteering with the pantry, contact our Food Pantry Coordinator Rebecca Wyss at 212.791.4590 extension 102 or foodpantry@cis-nyc.org.
