About My Campaign

The Table Food Pantry of the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone provides emergency food to over 5,000 people each year through a client-choice model, providing a variety of self-stable foods, fresh produce and dairy products. Participants are also connected to a continuum of wrap-around services, including access to SNAP food stamps and other benefits that will ensure long-term food security and support the health, stability and self-sufficiency of the entire family.

The Table is located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a low-income community identified by the NYC Food Assistance Collaborative as an area with high food insecurity. Funding is especially critical in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, as many residents have lost employment and are turning to the Table in higher numbers. In recent weeks, the amount of families seeking food assistance has doubled. Adequate food is essential to keeping our community healthy and resilient in these turbulent times, and the Table has remained open through the crisis when many other pantries have closed their doors. Through modified service delivery, the Table is distributing packs of groceries and has increased the number of volunteers to ensure safe social distancing. The Table is also working with NYU Langone-Brooklyn hospital to supply packs of groceries to COVID-19 patients upon discharge from NYU Langone-Brooklyn hospital.

This important work is not possible without the strong commitment of community partners like you! The generous spirit of our stakeholders truly makes an impact, helping us bring critical support services to those in need. No matter what amount, our participants will benefit greatly from your gift - donate today!

This campaign supports: Coronavirus - FHC11
