NEW YORK CITY — The West Side Campaign Against Hunger is a supermarket-style food pantry helping the hungry of New York since 1993 and feeds 22,000 every year.

During this challenging time, WSCAH is doing its part to help New Yorkers affected by COVID-19.

The group has delivered meals to 1,750 patients — each getting a two-day supply of healthy food — who were discharged from Bellevue Hospital. It is also working to get food into the hands of New Yorkers who need it amid the pandemic.

What makes WSCAH truly unique is its approach to combating hunger by providing food with dignity and empowering customers to find solutions. Through a supermarket-style food pantry, WSCAH alleviates hunger and creates a culture that promotes self-reliance and works for change.

It also provides numerous complimentary services to customers such as social services, education and employment assistance as well as its own culinary pathway program that supports customers in finding employment in the culinary industry.
