We're been consistently running our weekly distribution for one year now, and what a year it's been! We have been fortunate enough to receive food through the USDA Farmers to Families program since September 2020, but that program is sadly...

About


 
Every Monday since June 2020, a group of dedicated volunteers have been running a food and hygiene supplies pantry at The Living Gallery, a community art space in Brooklyn, New York. What started as a table with a few items donated by people in the neighborhood, has grown into a weekly distribution event that serves ~100 local families and individuals. The gallery also hosts a 24-hour community fridge. 

In a time of widespread financial insecurity, direct giving is more important than ever. Everything we share with our neighbors, we give with no strings attached. All monetary donations are used to purchase items for distribution. When using donated funds to purchase items, we make sure to budget judiciously and seek out good deals while providing high-quality and high-value products to our neighbors.

Thank you and all others who have contributed for keeping us going. You are important and you are valued.
