Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry Listings

There are many listings of soup kitchens and food pantries in NYC and some helpful ones can be found below. A lot of the same services can be found on different resource lists, but information – such as the days and times for services – can change frequently so it is always best to call ahead whenever possible to double-check that the assistance you need will be available when you plan on going.
