  5. How do I get food?

    You can receive food by visiting the food pantry or soup kitchen when it’s open. Make sure to check each resource page to see details like address, full schedule, and requirements.

  6. Can someone deliver the food to my house?

    Delivery services are very limited and are reserved for senior citizens or those with serious medical problems. If you believe you fall into either category, let us know and we may be able to help you find options in Financial District.

  7. What do I have to bring?

    Every location is different! Please review the details included on each resource to see whether you need to bring any documentation like ID or proof of address, or supplies like bags to carry the food. If you don’t see any information on the resource, you don’t have to bring anything!

    West Brooklyn Waterfront Mutual Aid

    Info

    Our model is taking individual requests from residents of our covered area (roughly Boerum Hill, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill) for groceries, baby supplies, and cleaning/household supplies.

    We can shop and deliver, put in an order for the person to pick up at Target, or if they're able to shop for themselves, we can either reimburse them or have one of our volunteers meet them at the store to pay at the register.

    Please fill out the request form or give us a call at (929) 314-0899.

    • Requirements

      • "First come, first served" basis. Whoever called first will be accommodated first.

  15. Do I need an appointment?

    Every location is different! Some places in Financial District accept appointments, some require it, and others allow walk-ins. Please review all details on the resource page to understand how you should prepare for your visit.

  16. What kind of food do they have?

    Food pantries offer grocery-style items such as canned food, fresh produce, and dry goods like pasta or rice that you can cook yourself. Soup kitchens offer ready-to-eat items like hot meals or sandwiches. All of these locations may have different options on different days, so it is hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day.

  17. Do they have vegetables?

    Pantries may have different options at different times, so it is hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day. Most pantries in Financial District do give out some form of vegetables, but they may be canned items.

  18. Do they have meat?

    Pantries may have different options on different days, so it’s hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day.

  19. Any pantries open today?

    If you’ve signed up for personalized assistance through our text message helpline, please take a look at the links we’ve sent you! If none of the resources we’ve sent are open today, let us know and we can search for additional options. Here’s a list of everything in Financial District that’s open today: Met Council on Housing, West Brooklyn Waterfront Mutual Aid

  20. Where are you located?

    Because our work is mostly virtual, the Lemontree team works remotely, and we don’t have an office in Financial District for in-person visits. You can always reach us by texting 90847 between 10am-6pm, every day of the week.
