Free food and assistance is available in New York City. No matter what your situation - you can get nutritious food!
Each year, Hunger Free NYC produces updated, comprehensive guides, also known as "street sheets," to free food access in specific neighborhoods within the five boroughs. The Guides contain information on how and where to access the SNAP/Food Stamp program, WIC, School and Summer Meals, senior meals, and various other assistance resources for the neighborhood covered. Each guide also contains a map showing the locations of SNAP offices and WIC sites, as well as local soup kitchens, food pantries and farmers’ markets that accept SNAP as payment.
Though you may have access to the printed guides in your area, which are available at various community-based organizations, HFNYC is pleased to provide copies of the guides for you to download and print out. Click on the neighborhood below to view and download the guides in PDF format.
Note: If you or anyone you are helping needs food in an area that is not covered by the Guides, please visit Hunger Free America's Find Food page or call the USDA's National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3 HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) or 1-877-8 HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273) to locate food resources in your area.
