With a ground level shopping floor, the pantry also has a second floor demonstration kitchen, classroom and three-station benefits center. Within six months of opening the new pantry, we more than doubled the number of families served. We continue to register new families at a rate of 20-30 per pantry shift – serving a still growing need.  

 

 

 


On the Pantry Shopping Floor:

  • Clients choose their own food, supermarket-style.
  • Shopping is by family size 1-6, once per month.
  • Greater selection of healthy products.
  • More fresh fruits and vegetables, including  from NEBHDCo gardens and local farms.
  • More refrigerated and frozen products, available from reach-in units.
  • Walk-in refrigerator and freezer for expanded perishables storage.


At the Demonstration Kitchen/Classroom and Benefits Center:

  • Cooking demonstrations, classes, and community events
  • Support services and referrals
    • NEBHDCo is a member of the North Brooklyn Network of the Food Bank for New York City’s  Tiered Engagement Network (TEN) Program, a referral partnership of more than 25 local agencies
    • Through TEN, we provide referrals to local service providers covering a wide range of needs.
