Bowen Center's food pantry in action

Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry offers emergency food relief for community residents who are experiencing financial difficulties and are in need of food.

During fiscal year 2016, The Emma L. Bowen Community Service Center served over 21,000 packages of food that included breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pantry bags are packaged according to the National Food Guide Pyramid and include fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy and protein. The food is provided by the Food Bank for NYC, United Way of NYC and Emergency Food and Shelter program (EFSP).

Hours of operation 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Tuesday – Thursday

Community members in crisis can also access the Food Pantry on Monday-Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
