Emergency Food Assistance

Contact Mindy Nisanov 718.268.5011 ext 633

Everyone at CQY is thankful for the outpouring of support after the recent fire in our house on 67th Road, which destroyed the agency's Food Pantry. We are especially grateful to Queens Jewish Center for giving us the space to distribute food packages until our own location is once again up and running.

We hope that you will announce to your congregations that anyone in need of food security, including those outside our own community, is invited to utilize the CQY’s Food Pantry.

Our temporary location is:
Queens Jewish Center, 66-05 108th Street, Forest Hills

Scheduled distribution dates are every other Wednesday from 9:00am –2:00pm.

The next distributions will be:

Wed. May 24th (O-Z)
Wed. June 7th (A-N)
Wed. June 21st (O-Z)

Please remember that anyone who is in need of groceries can call us any time to arrange an emergency pick-up.

Would you like to volunteer at our Food Pantry? Please contact Mindy Nisanov at 718.268.5011 ext 633 or by email, mnisanov@cqy.org. You may also contact Mindy for additional information about becoming a client of our Food Pantry.

If you would like to contribute, your donation of $18.00 will cover the cost of one of these 9 to12 meal distributions. Donations of non-perishable foods are gratefully accepted.


This program is made possible through the generosity of the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty.
