After many years distributing food to our local community in the Lower East Side, CIS-NYC’s Food Pantry Program relocated to Inwood in Upper Manhattan to begin a partnership with the Church of the Good Shepherd in the Spring of 2022. Since then, we have been working hard to build trust within our new community and expand our impact.
Last week, we hit a major milestone, registering our 1,000th Food Pantry member in Inwood! This means that 1,000 families in need now consistently have healthy, fresh food on their tables and access to a strong network of support through CIS-NYC. Thank you to our incredible staff, volunteers, and partners at the Church of the Good Shepherd for making this happen!
