The Queens Defenders Food Justice Program remains committed to serving the borough of Queens. With the generous support of 9 Million Reasons, The Campaign Against Hunger, Food Bank for NYC, and Fresco, our team has distributed over 7,000 food packages since June of 2021. 

On a weekly basis, we have been able to distribute nonperishable foods such as rice, beans, pasta, quinoa, and various canned goods. We’ve also given away fresh foods such as potatoes, onions, cabbage, celery, lettuce, apples, pineapples, kale, pears, and cucumbers. On an average week, 400 families receive packages of food from on food pantry. 

Do you or someone you know need food support? Come to one of our weekly food distributions.
