Manhattan food pantries.

Residents in Manhattan can turn to food banks and pantries for assistance. Dozens of locations around the region provide low income families and anyone who needs help with free groceries, emergency boxes of food, and other support. Soup kitchens around Manhattan can serve people a hot meal, lunch or breakfast.

Many of the soup kitchens and pantries are located at churches and charities. They are open limited hours and while they will try not to turn anyone away who meets qualifications, the assistance they offer is focused on people in the general area. So you will need to live near the pantry or soup kitchen in Manhattan in order to get help from it.

Some of what may be offered at these centers includes free boxes of food, groceries, perishable items, government commodities, and baby formula. Locations will often have volunteers or social workers on site who can help people apply for food stamps or refer clients to other government assistance programs in New York. For example, learn about food stamps, WIC, or where to turn to for holiday meals. Call for hours and qualifications of a non-profit center near you.
