What is a Food Pantry?

A food pantry is a distribution center where hungry families can receive food. Supplied with food from a food bank, pantries feed hundreds of people per week!

At a mobile pantry, truckloads of food are distributed to people in pre-packed boxes or displayed on folding tables like a farmer’s market.

How different is a food pantry from a food bank?

A food bank is a non-profit that safely stores millions of pounds of food that will soon be delivered to local food programs, like a food pantry.

The food they store is donated from local neighbors, retailers, grocery stores, and restaurants.

To get the food into the hands of the community, food banks hire drivers to make the deliveries. Every food bank serves a specific area that varies in size.

You May Qualify for SNAP

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits help you pay for food. You can use SNAP at grocery stores, supermarkets, and farmer’s markets.

Anyone can apply for SNAP benefits.

You may be eligible even if you have a job, receive SSI or disability benefits, own a home, or own a car.

If you are eligible and approved for benefits, you will receive SNAP benefits within 30 days.

Additionally, certain households with little income or savings, or with high housing costs, can receive SNAP benefits within five days (see below for details).

For details about SNAP eligibility and how to apply in the Bronx, see our post on Bronx, NY Food Stamps Guide.

How to Get Emergency SNAP

If your household has little or no money and needs food assistance right away, you may qualify for “expedited” SNAP.

You may be eligible for expedited SNAP if you meet one of the following:

  • Your household has $100 or less in liquid resources and less than $150 in gross monthly income.
  • You are a migrant or seasonal farmworker household with $100 or less in liquid resources and you have not received any income since you applied for SNAP, or
  • Your household’s monthly income and liquid resources together are less than the total of your monthly rent or mortgage and heating costs and utilities (electricity, telephone, and water).
If you do qualify, you must receive your initial benefit within 7 days.
However, you will still have to complete the eligibility process and supply the requested documentation at a later date.
For step-by-step instructions on how to get expedited SNAP benefits in New York City, see our post on how to get an expedited SNAP in New York City.
