Supermarket-Style Client-Choice Food Pantry in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn:
At Reaching-Out, we believe it is important that clients receive services and support that meets their needs in a dignified way. After a screening process that takes into account family size, income and address,
Clients receive a shopping list and grocery cart before choosing from a selection of healthy foods that meet their dietary needs and allows them to consider family preferences.
We believe that this process helps our clients preserve their pride and autonomy during times of difficulty, when clients often lose both.
We serve over 15 diverse zip code communities to low income individuals & families in the Brooklyn area.
Every 15 or 30 days they can receive free groceries as long as needed. We distribute various nutritional food items such as fresh or canned Fruits and Vegetables, Cereals, Bread, Juices, Meats,Fish,Rice,Dairy etc. Our goal is to bring relief to our neighbors in need of food due to very low income
Single parents, elderly, disabled, unemployed, the working poor, etc.
We hope to bring strength and dignity to the communities we serve.
Feeding more than 3200 people every month and increasing, requires not only the dedication of loyal volunteers and financial input from many sources, but also a facility in which to store the food and serve the people we help.
Our food pantry depends completely on donations our operational expenses.
