Weil Gives Supports An Uncommon Solution To Hunger

You may know the New York Common Pantry through the firm’s Volunteer Time Off Initiatives. And, you probably know it is a stellar organization. But did you know that last year alone, NYCP provided more than 2.6 million meals, helped countless families get access to important support services and ultimately helped families rebuild their lives?


How this project makes a difference

The mission of NYCP is to reduce hunger while supporting dignity and self sufficiency. All of their programs, including Hot Meals, Help 365, Nourish, Live Healthy, are designed to promote longer term independence. And what could inspire a greater sense of dignity than that? It’s so easy to help someone on that journey to self sufficiency.

Give $5, $10, $100 dollars today to make an uncommonly good difference for someone in need.

  • $40 provides one family a Holiday Dinner
  • $320 provides 8 families with Holiday Dinners
  • $1,000 buys milk for 943 families for one week
  • $2500 provides 3,049 Choice Pantry meals


Thank you!

  • New York Common Pantry

    New York Common Pantry is dedicated to reducing hunger throughout New York City while promoting dignity and self-sufficiency.

    New York Common Pantry works toward the reduction of hunger and food insecurity through an array of programs that function to establish long-term independence for those we serve. Our whole-person approach starts with food provision through the distribution of nutritious, fresh food pantry packages in Choice Pantry and hearty balanced breakfast and dinner in the Hot Meals program. Supplemental food is provided to seniors aged 60 and older through Nourish. We then go further to address the reasons for food insecurity with case management services through the help of Help 365, which assists Pantry visitors in gaining access to resources, and Project Dignity, which connects homeless visitors to resources. The third vital element in our whole-person approach is education offered through our Live Healthy! program. Live Healthy! teaches children and adults about the importance of a nutritionally sound diet and active living, as well as provides them with the skills necessary to make healthier choices for their families.
