Saint James Food Pantry
What we do
Seeking to model God’s love and care, St. James Food Pantry provides fresh and healthy food to our neighbors, regardless of religious affiliation and without discrimination.
Using best practices and guidelines from the NYS Department of Health, we ensure each family leaves with approximately three days worth of nutritious meals.
We’re open the Second Saturday of every month from 1-2:30pm. Volunteers gather at 11am to prep the food for distribution.
Why we’re needed
In our Bronx neighborhood, a majority of households earn $30,000 or less. Families struggle to determine which bills and health care costs will be paid or postponed. The working poor often sacrifice proper nutrition to navigate their financial challenges.
St. James Food Pantry is a welcome break from this struggle: our guests receive 3 days of guaranteed and secure nutrition.
