Coronavirus NYC Food Resource Guide: Ridgewood/Maspeth

As New York City faces increasing closures and changes to everyday life due to coronavirus (COVID-19), the HUNTER COLLEGE NYC FOOD POLICY CENTER aims to provide additional resources and support to community members whose lives are impacted by COVID-19.

Below is a resource guide with the following information: meals for children, meals for seniors, retail food stores and their delivery/benefits policies, local food pantries and soup kitchens, resources for homeless people, resources for immigrant populations and resources for people with disabilities.

The Center has also included citywide organizations and additional resources for New Yorkers, which are applicable to community members outside of Ridgewood/Maspeth as well. If you have family, friends or co-workers in other neighborhoods, please refer to our website where we have published additional reports. Please always call the listed organizations before visiting to get the latest information about their services, as many are changing daily. 

If you or someone you know has additional questions or is facing hunger or food insecurity please contact us at info@nycfoodpolicy.org or call the following organizations:

  • USDA National Hunger Hotline (Hunger Free America): 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (para español); Monday through Friday (7 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET)
  • HRA’s Emergency Food Hotline: 866-888-8777
  • Shelter or Temporary Housing Assistance: 3-1-1

Ridgewood/Maspeth Food Pantries and Soup Kitchens

The Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center is collaborating with Plentiful: a completely free, easy-to-use reservation system for food pantries and the people they serve. Through their database, the information below is constantly updated with the latest opening hours and/or changes due to COVID-19.

Many pantries require identification but may be making exceptions under the COVID-19 pandemic. Please call to see if identification is required.

EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED: Millions of New Yorkers rely on food pantries and soup kitchens to survive. To date, ⅓ have closed in NYC due to COVID-19. They relied on retired seniors to volunteer and since seniors can no longer safely leave their homes, pantries are in desperate need of young and healthy volunteers.
