Beyond Hunger Emergency Food Pantry

Since 1988, CAMBA has operated an emergency food pantry in Brooklyn. Our food pantry operates on a client-choice/supermarket-style system, where clients choose individual food items rather than receiving pre-packed bags as they would at traditional pantries. The pantry distributes a three-day supply of nutritional food, which is necessary for many of its clients---including the elderly and those at or below the poverty level---who are unable to maintain a healthy diet. Clients include both CAMBA clients and those referred by churches and other agencies. The pantry also provides public benefit screening and assistance with applications; nutritional education; and information and referrals to money management, social service programs and healthcare providers. CAMBA’s Beyond Hunger Emergency Food Pantry serves an average of 3,400 individuals each month
