Feeding Our Neighbors

Far too many New York City residents - 1.4 million people, to be precise -- depend on food pantries and soup kitchens in New York to survive. That’s one out of every five New Yorkers, older women,  working families, veterans and, worst of all, children.

Catholic Charities is making a difference.  We partner with programs to provide more than 6.5 million meals to hungry New Yorkers each year. Community and parish-based food programs and pantries offer families food to bring home.  Many locations also provide hot meals on site. Our mobile food pantry supported by the Rusty Staub Foundation provides meals and other services in Staten Island.   And we connect hungry people to the extra support they need so they will not go hungry again.

We also partner with fellow organizations to make sure no one goes hungry:
