If you are in an urgent situation and need emergency food supplies, please call (718) 282-3082 to confirm the hours of operation. You will need to bring a Photo ID for entry to the Pantry.
CAMBA’s Pantry operates on a client-choice/supermarket-style system, where clients choose individual food items rather than receiving pre-packed bags, as they would at traditional pantries. Clients also receive vegetables and fruits from nearby farms in NY State.
The Pantry distributes a three-day supply of nutritional food. This is critical to maintain a healthy diet, particularly for the elderly and community members struggling financially. Pantry clients include current CAMBA clients, those referred by other agencies and organizations, and other community members in need..
The pantry also provides:
- Public benefit screening and assistance with applications
- Nutritional education
- Information and referrals to money management, social service programs and healthcare providers
This program is funded by NYS Department of Health, Food Bank of NYC Tiered Engagement Network; United Way of NYC, NYC Human Resources Administration, City Harvest and private donors.
Eligibility: Individuals and families with a need for emergency food. Must bring photo ID.
Clients Served Annually: Serving more than 2,000 food insecure New Yorkers weekly
Referrals Accepted: Yes
