FOOD SERVICES AT THE H.E.S

In addition to our FOOD PANTRY, the H.E.S. is providing GRAB-AND-GO meals (Breakfast and Lunch) for all school-aged children.
FOOD PANTRY and GRAB-AND-GO
MONDAY – THURSDAY | 9:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M
Our FOOD PANTRY continues to operate by appointment; however, now you can reserve an appointment online from the comfort of your own home. CLICK HERE to reserve your appointment.
Our GRAB-AND-GO services are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please simply stop by the H.E.S. (entrance on East 95th Street) to pick up meals for your children.
If you need assistance, please email us at hespantry@thehes.org or call 718-241-3000 ext 4.
Apply for SNAP – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – and find other food resources in your neighborhood without leaving the comfort of your couch.
Simply reach out to Basil Francis our local Met Council NOEP coordinator at 347-800-2922 or via email bfrancis@metcouncil.org.
He can help you find out if you could be eligible for the SNAP program.
