The West Side Campaign Against Hunger is holding a lunch on May 13 at 12:30 meant to raise money for its supermarket-style food pantry, which is located in the basement of the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew at 263 West 86th Street and served 115,000 people last year. Demand is rising because of food stamp cuts by Congress, WSCAH says. “One quarter of the $9 billion cut in food stamps enacted this year will come from our neighbors in New York City.” To learn more and buy a ticket, click here.
If you need help, pantry hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 8 a.m.-12 p.m. & 1-3 p.m. (Please arrive at least a half hour before closing.) Extended pantry hours for working people: Monday 3-6:30 p.m. Customers also work at the pantry in a cooperative model. To learn more call 212-362-3662.
