NYC Food Delivery Assistance

The City of New York is providing assistance to New Yorkers during the COVID-19 crisis by delivering meals to those who cannot access food themselves.

Who is this for?

This website is intended for individuals and families who meet all of the following criteria as a result of the COVID-19 emergency:

  • No members of the household can go out and get food because they are at increased medical risk or homebound
  • No neighbors or family members can go out and get food for you
  • Do not receive meal assistance from other providers (incl. Meals on Wheels or God's Love We Deliver); and
  • You are unable to afford meal delivery or grocery delivery

Households that qualify may order three days of food at a time for up to a month.

All orders will be delivered within three days of the order date.

Each delivery will contain three days of food (9 meals per person, but no household will receive more than 18 meals per delivery).

Visit to find the nearest food pantry, soup kitchen, or DOE Grab'n'Go site located in your neighborhood.
