Staten Island food pantries.

Staten Island residents can receive short term assistance from food pantries in the region. Many of the centers are operated by non-profit agencies, churches, and other charity organizations. Families that meet qualifications can receive groceries and food from the centers which will provide them time to explore longer term solutions.

The food banks and pantries may distribute a wide range of goods to the low income. Depending on the center and what has been donated, it can include fresh fruits, vegetables, frozen foods, baby formula, and meals customized for senior citizens. The Staten Island centers will be open very limited hours and their resources are stretched thin. Some sites require appointments. So calling in advance may be worthwhile.

If a location can't meet the needs of you or your family then they may provide referrals to other nearby resources or to state of New York or federal government program.
