Food & Assistance Guides

 

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 Neighborhood Guides to Food & Assistance containing detailed information on free food access in all five boroughs. Users can learn how and where to access SNAP/Food Stamps, WIC, School and Summer Meals, senior meals, soup kitchens and food pantries, and farmers’ markets that accept SNAP as payment.  Each Guide also contains a map showing the locations of these sites.

Hunger Free NYC distributes these free of charge. If you would like to receive hard copies in bulk, or have any feedback, questions, or comments about the Guides, please email us at guides@hungerfreenyc.org or call us at (212) 825-0028 ext. 216. Available versions may be viewed as PDFs below.
