New York, NY
New York Common Pantry’s mission is to reduce hunger throughout New York City while promoting dignity and self-sufficiency. It accomplishes this through food pantry and meal distribution programs, nutrition education, basic hygiene services, homeless support, and related services. The Specialty Food Foundation will be supporting the expansion of the food rescue initiative for the Pantry, Hot Meal, and Live Healthy! programs by paying operational costs for one of the food rescue vans. Over half of all agency labor is performed by volunteers, who will help distribute rescued food.
