Campus Food Pantry Updates

CUNY is doing all that it can to keep CUNY food pantries open while also protecting students against exposure to infection. In an effort to minimize student travel, CUNY students can go to any CUNY food pantry. CUNY also encourages students to seek pantries that are close to home and require minimal travel.  Click here for a list of CUNY pantry locations and contact information. Before visiting, contact any pantry in advance to ensure that it is open.  

Also, see list below for food resources available to all New Yorkers.

In light of ongoing developments around COVID-19, some emergency food providers have temporarily suspended normal operations and have switched to “grab and go” meals and pantry bags to minimize the risk of exposure. Many others, however remain open and this website will help you find pantries near your home address.
